Trivia

The actors were never given the script in its entirety so none of them knew of their character's fates, sometimes not until the day they were actually filming their scenes. This meant that the actors were - more often than not - stressed, nervous and apprehensive on the day of filming, ideal qualities for the film itself. See more »

Goofs

Near the end when Angela and Pablo are listening to the recorder in the penthouse, Angela is obviously rewinding the tape. However, the second time when she rewinds the tape, the audio implies that it was fast-forwarded, as the recording is a diary describing events in chronological order. Watch the tape reel when she rewinds the tape. As it plays forward the reel turns more times than it was rewound. It is impossible for her to hear very much different dialogue without rewinding the tape much more than she does, and then it wouldn't make sense as the dialogue is chronological. In reality, she would be hearing the same spoken passage repeatedly. See more »

It shocked me!
17 December 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I just liked the movie. That's all! I was alone in the movie theater, and after the movie, I went shopping to the supermarket, and I felt like everybody was strange, and moved strange. I was lucky it wasn't dark yet. The movie looks simple, but sure there is a script, and I like the humor in it, too. Next day, while having a shower, I started laughing thinking about some parts of the movie. The way the movie is recorded, it looks difficult to know how it will be possible for the movie to go on. But it gets on, and better! The fear increases because you do NOT see completely what it's happening. That's the tricky part: You (and the actors) know/don't know, see/don't see. The action and the images are not completely evident and clear. But it can be good for the movie. It's not Dawn of the Dead, it's different, but I also liked it a lot!
