Passable Horror Film
30 June 2012 | by billcr12See all my reviews

The Owner is a guy with an apartment building rigged with cameras so that he can spy on his tenants. Hector also has a big metal cylinder containing some kind of sedative which is piped into a nearby bedroom. Well, well, well; the fat and balding landlord has the good fortune of renting to a young and sexy lesbian actress. Lights, camera, action; let the good times roll. He observes Lara and her girlfriend in an intimate moment.

After Lara's partner leaves, Hector turns on the special gas to the bedroom, knocking her out cold. He then proceeds to have his way with the sleeping beauty. This becomes habit forming, as there are several repeat performances. In between, Lara is at a movie set, filming a low budget, grade b horror film, which I found extremely distracting.

The inevitable happens, as Lara becomes pregnant, and believes that she is a modern Virgin Mary, carrying a 21st century Jesus. Be forewarned of nudity and violence, but at 78 minutes, it is a quick viewing. The actors are competent and the script is passable for this genre, and the ending is decent, so I give it a slight thumbs up.
