Absolutely savage, harrowing and relentlessly brutal.
7 May 2011 | by Corpus_VileSee all my reviews

Caught this at the Edinburgh Dead By Dawn festival yesterday, and man... when this film was over, you could hear a pin drop. People looked slightly dazed and drained after it.

An absolutely shocking short Spanish horror film on domestic abuse, it's certainly not for everyone, with some deeply upsetting, wince inducing ultra violence, and a nightmarish quality to it. It also has some surprisingly decent FX, for a short film.

A relentlessly grim and brutal nightmare, it comes across like an unholy combination of Irreversible and an Aphex Twin video.

NOT for everyone's tastes (and I do mean this), but I personally found it a depressing, horrific, but very well made film, with a pertinent message to go with its savagery. 8/10, an extremely nasty but great short film.
