Storyline

A beautiful young dancer, Rosa (Ana De Armas) comes home from an audition (which comprises the background for the opening credits), feeling quietly confident about getting a break. Just as she arrives, her very sketchy cellphone rings, to tell her she has a call-back the next day. Excited, she visits the nearby laundromat to wash her costume, where she is spooked by various members of her neighbourhood's nightly denizens. Written by sc4v3mg3r242

Lazy horror.
14 August 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I do believe this one could have provided a lot more and also, faster. Sure it doesn't even hit the 90 min mark, so I get it, they had to fill that little time, but come on, either go a more complex plot, or make a great short horror.

Reasons to like it? The story is not the worse out there, a lot of similarities with "ATM" even a little "Penny Dreadful", provides some interesting things but those never ending flashes just got me out of my mind! You can't show a flash of something that happened 5-10 minutes ago, it is just wrong! Let us think a little too, we're not all brain dead here. Scares? Can't really call them that, still, a little bit of tension does exist, but it is ruined by the "grand" finale, where everything is just too easy to anticipate.

So, all in all, for a lazy late night, it could work. But if you want something fun to watch, or share with some friends, don't let it hit your screen. Takes forever to get to its destination and then makes itself too obvious.

Cheers!
