Erika Buenfil makes this worth seeing
3 April 2009 | by charliebuenfilSee all my reviews

The only reason i bought this was because Erika Buenfil starred in it. Besides the DVD double feature with cementerio del terror was so cheap $5. It was better than expected!!!! The cast was mostly good including Buenfil, Almada and Edna Bolkan. Its also fun to recognze so many actors from that era. Its a shame that most them didn't make it big into the 90s, much less the 00s. The only ones that continue with a visible career are Erika buenfil, who was already a big star and probably this was beneath her status at the time. Ernesto Laguardia was coming up big at the time and he is still around. The only one i hated was the ugly Andrea Legarreta!! who never made it big in soaps or movies, but somehow has managed longetivity as TV presenter. Back to the movie, It was actually very entertaining and it kept you wanting to see more, as oppossed to other cheap horror flicks that are just awful. This one is better than Cementerio del Terror. The DVD transfer was good also. It played very well on my flat screen.
