Attracted to Diego's mystery and the local gossip about him, she becomes close to him, but discovers his "talent" has a violent edge, one that brings painful consequences to both of them. Written by
This film is a bit of a mind twist and a strange take on horror. Most horror uses ample blood and guts, but this one tricks the mind instead of all the blood and guts, and the way they show the healing sequences with the lead character really goes everywhere visually. I think it is about quantum healing. The best thing is the cinematography which is really something. It left me thinking about it for a long time after the film was over. The film was shot in Puerto Rico in a small island. So some of the shots seem to go on forever.
I was really engaged in this film, and challenged. It made me think, and when films do that, it's good. More films should be as challenging, in a good way.
