A gang of armed robbers finds a safe haven in a secluded village crammed with witches--only to encounter the bizarre, the unexpected, and the occult. Can they save themselves, and the rest of the world from the next witch apocalypse?
In the crowded streets of Madrid, a gang of armed robbers disguised as street performers attempt to escape jail, after robbing a gold exchange pawn shop. With the help of a reluctant taxi driver, the bandits head to the safety of the borders; however, when night arrives, the only safe haven is deep in the woods of the secluded and notorious village of Zugarramurdi; a dark place known for some witch activity in the past. But, in a place crammed with witches of all sorts--and after numerous encounters with the bizarre, the unexpected and the occult--the clumsy thieves will have to learn fast the ways of the coven if they want to save themselves, and the rest of the world from the next witch apocalypse. But, are they up to the job?Written by
The exteriors for the opening "heist" scene was filmed is Puerta Del Sol. The director said it was one of the most difficult things he ever had to film, because Puertra Del Sol is in a 'totally central location', impossible to build a set for and recreate, and could not be shut down temporarily for filming. He said they had to make it a "guerilla shoot" as far the exteriors (and some brief interiors). The store that offers to "Turn Gold Into Cash" that is robbed during the heist is an actual store, and the real store-front was used. See more »

This movie is extremely entertaining, surprising and funny. It's full of heart thumping action. Each of the characters are interesting to watch. The only reason I give this movie 8 stars is due to the cave scene being way over the top. Otherwise, this movie is great fun!
