Francesca is a pediatrician who is dedicated to both motherhood and children, married to another physician, Pedro. Following the birth of a new child, Francesca begins to suffer from postpartum depression. Following the advice of friend and psychiatrist Jean, the couple move to a new home away from the city. But Francesca's obsession with her new baby engulfs her. Regardless of Pedro's and Jean's attempts to help her, she seems to drift dangerously close to madness. And to make matters worse, she is starting to hear and see things. Furtive figures and ghostly shadows start tormenting her. The large house in which she and her family live alone seems to hide terrible secrets. Both the cellar and the attic are locked and barred to the family, and it is from both these places that Francesca receives nocturnal visits that are slowly driving her mad. Written by Anonymous

Old school ghost story, very good under any title
4 April 2013 | by amesmondeSee all my reviews

A couple move to a former school and call on the help of a priest when and old woman's warnings who has recently awoken from a coma become relevant.

Also known as No-Do, The Haunting or The Beckoning it's a paint by numbers story but a creepy effective well made Spanish horror/thriller. Reminiscent of The Haunting (1963) with elements of Rec 2 and The Orphanage.

The characters are well written and some of the performances are outstanding with Ana Torrent as Francesca, fantastic Héctor Colomé as Miguel and notable María Alfonsa Rosso as Blanca.

Director/writer Elio Quiroga delivers some great visuals with excellent ghost effects that are complimented by the sound design and score. Again its perfectly acted with some genuine looking actors (Western casting agents may want to make note).

It doesn't matter that you can guess the connections, it's an old style ghost story wonderfully shot that keeps you interested to the satisfying conclusion.
