This is a great TRILOGY
For anyone confused as to why there are so many plot lines left unfinished, they are addressed in the second movie. This trilogy is based on a book, adding mystical elements which may seem confusing at first. Would definitely recommend watching the rest before jumping to conclusions. Amazing cinematography, along with a good portrayal of Spain, showing us an urban legend while keeping it a great thriller !
