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

Has a couple things going for it, but not enough
20 July 2014 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This movie has two things going for it. It has a pretty decent main setting of an all-night laundromat. It's NOT believable, if you know Madrid at all, that a laundromat would be that deserted late at night (it would be much more likely at 6 or 7 in the morning), but it's an effective setting nevertheless. The second is the lead actress Ana de Armas (Ana of Guns). She is first seen at a go-go dancing audition in a very short skirt and, good god, she is cute! It's a little less believable she has to work as a motel maid while waiting for her big break or that she is unlucky at love. Anyway, during her whole laundromat ordeal she is dressed in a pair of skin-tight yellow pants. It's very distracting. I don't know if it's because her ass is that mesmerizing or the rest of the movie is that boring--probably a little of both. Anyway, halfway through this I was checking the internet to see if she has ever appeared in a better movie.

I disagree that this movie is a giallo. It's way too pedestrian. It's mostly just a standard-issue psycho stalker movie. She meets a scary-looking street person and a handsome young stud in the laundromat. Guess which one she has to worry about? Still, they might have pulled this off, having such a good setting and muy caliente leading actress, but then Leanor Varela shows up. Now Varela is a good actress (and pretty muy caliente herself), but unfortunately she ushers in a whiplash-inducing plot twist and some bad CGI as the movie shifts from one rather tiresome horror movie cliché to a completely different but equally tiresome one (a la "From Dusk to Dawn"). It also goes from kinda boring to really stupid.

At it's best this could have been like the British movie "Creep", but it goes well off the rails even before its scant 75 minute running time is over. This is the kind of movie Hollywood OUGHT to re-make. Keep Ana and her yellow pants and the eerie all-night laundromat, throw out everything else. . .
