Goofs

After Deborah takes a picture directly into the bathroom mirror, then falls backwards into the tub, she looks at the resulting shot and it shows her in mid-fall with the camera clearly pointed at the ceiling. Even if the mirror has magical or mystic powers, the digital camera would have reproduced the image presented to the lens, not the point of view of the mirror. See more »

"Making things happen by drawing them"
18 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent horror movie, and I will tell you step by step, why. Although the sources of writer-director Pablo Proenza are unknown to me, the plot makes systematical use of what is called in logic "poly-contextural" elements. Examples are: The exchange relation between a sign and its object, especially a painting and the real, painted person, or the exchange relation between two persons, by which operation the identity relation of the individual is abolished. The possibility that one person can appear at the same time in more than one place - thereby abolishing the Aristotelian triad of individual, place and time. The idea that Death does not abolish the individuality of a person, although it may well abolish its body and the related idea that the will, but not the thinking, of a dead person can survive and therefore influence the lives of the living. "Poly-contextural" is also the idea that "ghosts" can be imprisoned in prismatic glass (windows) or in whole houses, so also the idea/motive of the "Haunted House" has "poly-contextural" roots.

In systematically using such motives the horror movies of the new generation do a big quality jump over their ancestors. Not only a quantity jump - by using more and even complexer technical effects which, at the end, dissolve themselves, but by bringing out the deepest horror which mankind is possibly able to sense: the idea to stand before oneself, the doubling of personality, the non-difference between life and death, the reversibility of the path between the Here and the Beyond and so on. This is not Science-Fiction, but based on solid logical Cybernetics, developed mainly in the US since the 50ies.

Congratulations to the director for this masterpiece! May he continue his way and become the ice-breaker for a real, qualitatively and not only quantitatively new generation of the horror film.
