It isn't very often that you get the chance to see a movie from Peru, so when this particular Peruvian movie popped up on Netflix, I decided to seize the opportunity. However, the movie let me down in most departments. I knew that the budget was very tight, so I was able to look past the fact that the general look and feel of the movie was akin to what's typically found in an episode of a typically Canadian television drama. However, the movie simply doesn't work in its main attempt, to scare or to simply chill. Certainly, the script contains a story cobbled from multiple elements and plot turns you've seen in dozens of other horror movies before, but the direction is utterly unimaginative. The attempts at horror come across in a surprisingly matter-of-fact manner, with apparently no effort to punch them up or give them freshness. And the movie, despite only being about 86 minutes long, plods along extremely slowly scene from scene. What the movie ends up being is a horror movie for those who don't like to be scared, and are possibly at the same time being insomniacs. Chances are that it will be a long time before Netflix gets acquires another movie from Peru.
