Most of the Killers were discovered , judged , condemned and executed by Garrote Vil . And the film ¨Amantes¨ (1991) originally intended to be produced as an episode of the TV crime anthology series 'La Huella Del Crimen 2' (1991) , before producer Pedro Costa decided to rewrite the script as a theatrical film after talking to Vicente Aranda and realized it could be a big box office hit.
