Storyline

Para Elisa is a terrifying story based on a simple, innocent children's game. Something that looks naive and harmless turns into the worst nightmare, into the struggle to escape a tragic and expected end, into an explicit and inevitable horror. Written by Alex Carbonell

Spanish horror borrows from other films but still entertains
10 August 2014 | by victoryismineblastSee all my reviews

I haven't seen a decent Spanish horror movie in a while so I was kind of excited to watch this one. I read up on it and heard some good things and some not so good things but I decided to give it a try.

Beautiful university student Ana is on the verge of graduating with a Fine Arts degree. The grad trip costs 1000 Euros however, and her parents won't give her the money. She finds an ad for a nanny job and calls to arrange for an interview. Things of course are not as they seem when she arrives at the house as she is drugged and finds out she is to be a living doll to a not so young psychotic girl.

This movie plays out like a cross between House of the Devil and Misery (There's definitely an homage to Annie Wilkes). It is pretty interesting for the most part and though it did drag a little in places, the pace always picked right back up. The movie itself is pretty short at about 73 minutes including the credits so there wasn't much of a chance for it to slow down too much. All in all it is worth giving a look-see. 7/10.
