Solid and exciting if a little silly Spanish TV Horror entry, 28 December 2009
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

I had previously seen just one of the 6 Films To Keep You Awake before To Let, the non horror Spectre, which led me to mixed expectations. To Let is a whole different kettle of fish though, a tense and twisted survival horror that gets in gear quickly and smoothly runs on chilling excitement for its duration. It tells the story of Mario and Clara, young couple with a baby on the way looking for a place to stay, who answer a To Let advertisement and end up in a terrifying situation with a landlady. The film falls under the survival horror mantle and as such has a whip smart pace, it is well handled by director Jaume Balagueró, smart camera angles, glum visuals and creepy images, all elements deployed with skill and wound together to bring on near nail biting tension in remarkably short time. Of course, such plotting and a reliance on shock and awe require decent acting for support and fortunately everybody is up to the task. Adria Collado and Macarena Gomez are convincingly fearful and set upon as the young Mario and Clara, with a certain bond and sense of goodness that may not make them most effective in such a strange and terrible situation, but makes them more relatable as characters than some others in films such as this who suddenly seem to draw on hidden violent survivalist instincts to save the day. Mario and Clara may not be the smartest or most effective protagonists but they are endearing and make for a good contrast with Nuria González, who brings a sense of disturbing derangement to her role, an unpredictable and violent oddity that is quite captivating. The film is highly satisfying for a good portion of the time, but its not all roses unfortunately. The final block of the film is set up and put in motion by a breathtakingly daft character decision, it doesn't ring true and feels not only a contrivance but worse an outright silly one. It brings the last ten to fifteen minutes down a few notches and is a real shame, it is also a flaw significant enough to highlight other problems with the film. Being a TV movie a lack of serious nastiness isn't such a problem, more irksome is the way that the plot and setup isn't well developed as it could be, with a little more explanation or simply more foreshadowing the film could have had a lot more impact, especially towards the end, also it could have definitely done with more development of the leads. Well acted but insubstantial they are watchable and sympathetic enough, but not muchly so, and could have done with somewhat more coloring to them. Less dumb decision making would have gone down a treat as well. Nonetheless this is decent entertainment, recommended as a bit of an easygoing quick fix affair, mostly if one can get past some significant dumb character moves.
