Storyline

A beautiful young dancer, Rosa (Ana De Armas) comes home from an audition (which comprises the background for the opening credits), feeling quietly confident about getting a break. Just as she arrives, her very sketchy cellphone rings, to tell her she has a call-back the next day. Excited, she visits the nearby laundromat to wash her costume, where she is spooked by various members of her neighbourhood's nightly denizens. Written by sc4v3mg3r242

Blind Alley: Oddly entertaining horror
19 August 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Blind Alley was not what I expected, a claustrophobic slasher flick set within a lonely laundromat which goes in directions you will not see coming.

This Spanish made horror is made well, fantastic cinematography, thrilling from start to finish and extremely atmospheric.

With a brilliant cast across the board (Though minimal cast required) I found myself rooting for our heroine despite her being a very generic victim type.

What really sets it apart from the rest is the big twist at the end which alike the likes of Orphan (2009) I can confidently say I didn't see coming at all.

The films biggest flaw is its runtime, standing at only around 75 minutes long this damaged the film and due to its content felt more like a Tales From The Crypt episode than an actual movie.

Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed Blind Alley but it would have benefited overwhelmingly from an additional 30 minutes.

The Good:

Fantastic twist

Very well filmed

Great tension

Solid cast

The Bad:

Far too short

Pointless side plot
