Trivia

The exteriors for the opening "heist" scene was filmed is Puerta Del Sol. The director said it was one of the most difficult things he ever had to film, because Puertra Del Sol is in a 'totally central location', impossible to build a set for and recreate, and could not be shut down temporarily for filming. He said they had to make it a "guerilla shoot" as far the exteriors (and some brief interiors). The store that offers to "Turn Gold Into Cash" that is robbed during the heist is an actual store, and the real store-front was used. See more »

Starts as a funny crime-caper, ends as a very silly horror movie
3 April 2015 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Starts as a funny crime-caper, ends as a very silly horror movie.

This movie had potential. It started very well, with a good robbery and police chase and some very funny dialogue. However, the moment it went from Tarantinoesque crime drama to a supernatural horror movie, it lost all focus and became very stupid. Just scene after mindless scene of hokey, unoriginal horror crap.

Some of the clever dialogue remains, but that's about all that's positive about the last 70% or so of the movie.

Sort of reminded me of From Dusk Till Dawn, which started well and then progressed/degenerated in a similar fashion.
