In real life, the number 32 of the street "Manuela Malasaña" in Madrid (where the film takes place) doesn't exist. The last number on that street is number 30. This is obviously intentional. See more »

Awesome Spanish film!
"Malasaña 32" is a great horror film with influences about "The Exorcist", "The Conjuring", and Polanski's apartment trilogy. Set in the 1970's, the set decoration and costume design are cool. The script is creepy, the acting and direction are amazing. The special effects are great. The story is thrilling, a classic haunted house mistery and even sadly scenes, some jump scares but not easy ones, a very good film. A classic for the 2020's decade.
