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
Blind Alley is an apt title for this silly thriller that is not scary or even well thought out. It begins with a beautiful girl, Rosa(Ana de Armas) dancing in booty shorts and mini skirts at a photo shoot audition for some unknown reason. Next up, she is in a house cleaner's uniform talking with a coworker as they clean hotel rooms. On her way home she stops at a 24 hour laundromat with flickering lights, in the middle of the night, with no one around. A young man walks in and they seem to connect until he behaves strangely and she barricades herself inside the place as he taunts her. The storyline is not worth the paper it was written on. The one positive is Ana de Armas, a gorgeous young actress. The negative aspect is that Ana keeps her clothes on, which is a shame, because at least I would have one reason to recommend this film. Do not waste your time on Blind Alley.
