This Spanish genre film feels very derivative of Stephen King works like "Cujo" or "Silver Bullet" and movies like "Monkey Shines", but that wouldn't be a big problem for a horror film if it wasn't for the fact that this one is not actually very good. It's true that Paula del Río gives a good performance as the paralysed girl (a little annoying sometimes, I have to say), but the whole movie is formulaic, unexciting and shot without style; with just as many cheap tricks as you can imagine.
