Román and his friend Ali seek out his girlfriend Jackie in a dangerous zone in a suburb in Buenos Aires. Ali shows an old house and tells that Jackie had met a blonde guy that she found in Internet, and now she had been invited to have dinner with him. Román waits in the car while Ali enters the house. When Román suspects that something is wrong, he breaks in the house and finds two old men torturing a young woman in a room in the basement and Ali tied with nitroglycerin in her front head. Román neutralizes the nitro and releases his friend. Then he decides to seek out Jackie in the place while Ali tries to leave the house and call the police. Written by

This film had a great idea. A plot with so many twists that it could actually have worked out right. But, the many ways dilemmas are resolved throughout the script are way beyond suspending judgment. And I find that boring, sad and hilarious. The film is very well done and has very good acting. The sets are amazing and photography, well, amazing.
There's a clear (more than clear, it's sometimes a copy) reference to many of Dario Argento's films. The super slow-motion, ultra-dramatic scenes are just one example. The way music is used is not only reminiscent of Argento, but with almost exactly the same choices of genres and styles. This could've been great in that time; today it really distracts the audience from the continuous and completely unjustified drama you watch.
The way the script (or later decisions) resorted to the "forgotten wild women" lair, is gratuitous and very, very funny, but it gets in the narrative so deeply that it is a pity to watch. Good entertainment, lots of blood, extremely well crafted gore, beautiful super-slo-mo and a creative torture made me give the film 6 stars. But films are about stories, and here, we have one that came out a bit uncooked and way over the top.
