The eight year old boy Jesús has been living in a crumbling underground facility since he was born with eight survivors of an apocalyptic war: the leader Maria and her lover Pablo; the gays Lucas and Mateo; the astronomer Magdalena and the teenager Ana; the soldier Pedro and the lonely Judas. They are permanently under surveillance, threatened by the contaminated mutants The Strangers and once a day they have to lock themselves in their rooms without heating to protect against the dangerous ghosts The Invisibles that attack in the Cold Hour. They cannot go to the surface, destroyed by a nuclear war. When they need supplies, medications and ammunition, they organize expeditions to a store. When the menace of The Invisibles affects the safety of the group of survivors, they need to reach the surface.Written by

It's funny that the English title isn't literally, but they opted to go for the more "frightening" DARK hour, instead of the correct COLD hour! But that's just a side note. Back to the movie, that is as I stated in the summary line, a sci-fi story. And I think that it could've been a double episode of the Outer Limits. I don't say it, as a bad thing.
I liked the movie. The strange atmosphere, the great actors and a ambiguous ending (you could say that, as I did, or maybe it's crystal clear to you, you have to watch it and tell for yourself) all combined to a great whole. And although it is quite unique, something was missing, but I couldn't tell you what, for me to like it even more ...
