Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca's family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca's loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form.Written by

This is a difficult one, i mean, it's a horror story but everything is done off-camera so no red stuff or to be honest nothing at all and still some do find it rather creepy.
Being shot in black and white doesn't make it easier to watch. It do has an overall art-house overlook so many geeks in the horror genre will stop this flick quickly. But it's worth picking up, at this writing it's all over the world being shown at festivals. Why should you watch it, well, if you're into art-house you will love this or if you do like creepy stories then this is also a must see. You are left with your imagination and you will be pushed in your mind that this could happen with the girl next door. It's all seeing normal but it isn't because torture and in fact child abuse are the main theme. With eyes being poked out and having sex with your victims is very rare to watch.
What turns out to be a home invasion turns a complete different way. Be open minded and see this rather bizarre story.
