Ernesto Gómez Cruz,
An array of 5 short stories, it will keep you entertained and anxious to see the next one. Not bad for a low budget movie. Each tale takes you to a different place and time; no superheroes or special effects, just common people and common situations. Unexpected ends are part of the shows. You will laugh, think and meditate.
A very unusual Halloween party, a midnight movie, an unexpected UFO encounter, a very obnoxious neighbor and a very violent resident will make you reconsider getting violent again in your life. Great movie for a Saturday night at home. Mexican cinema of the 80's actually produced some good movies and this is one of them!
