The film contains mystery, violence, suspense in a dark atmosphere with imposing tension and intrigue. Juan Diego who holds a strong Argentinian accent makes a fine performance as depressed young who returns his native town that leads a madness spiral. He is well accompanied by gloomy characters as Luis Tosar as reappeared father .The film is well shot in Santiago De Compostela , showing spectacularly the monuments, streets and the breathtaking cathedral . Colorful cinematography by Javier Salmones is good , creating a frightening and scary atmosphere . Mesmerizing and intriguing musical score by Javier Navarrete. The flick is finely produced by the chairman of Filmax Productions , Julio Fernandez , a successful producer and expert on terror genre , producer of hits as ¨The machinist¨, ¨Rec 1, y 2¨ ,¨ Fragiles¨, ¨Darkness¨, and many others . The motion picture is middling realized by Galician director Xavier Villaverde , because resulting to be slow moving and little bit boring , it's his third film , formerly he directed ¨Continental¨ and ¨Finisterre¨ . The picture was a box office flop being the filmmaker's last work . Rating : Average .
