Lourdes is a young woman that works at night cleaning a restaurant. All the money she made is for her son that lives in her hometown with her mother. We know very little about Lourdes son, only that he is sick and Lourdes is working every night and sending money to help her son and find a cure for his illness. Suddenly, Lourdes starts seeing visions in the restaurant where she works, in her little apartment. These visions, her evil co-workers and her son apart from her, all this stresses Lourdes out and she begins asking herself "who wants to hurt her"? Or if all of whats happening is really happening or not.Written by
6.6 of 10. It's rare that you get horror combined with a finely structured mystery and an Irreversible shout-out. That's what you get here. Great relative to most horror, pretty good as a film overall. Had more thought gone into the film's title, it would get another bump up.
There's an unspoken subplot in this film involving what crosses protect you from. But telling you how that turns out will spoil the ending.
The film as a whole could be discussed thoroughly about what other allusions and metaphors the film serves up on modern American society, immigrants, employment, and boss-worker relationships. Horror worthy of showing in a film school.
