Storyline

In Spain a young artist has gone missing, and a hardened detective takes on the case. Six friends become the focus of the investigation, being pressured for their knowledge of the artist's whereabouts. They all deny involvement, and soon they have reason to fear for their lives as it appears a serial killer is hunting them all down. The one friend closest to the artist watches helplessly as his once quiet life is shattered by incrimination, suspicion and ultimately -- horrific violence. Written by mikhail080@cs.com

SPANISH THRILLER/DRAMA,REALLY WORTH WATCHING !!
27 June 2003 | by spanky6666See all my reviews

Nice Spanish Thriller(supernatural)/Drama that's definitely worth watching,nice rental!!

It's your typical "Kill them one by one" movie (like Scream) where a bunch of young adults did something wrong in the past and have to pay for that now...

This is NOT a horror/Comedy,it breaths a dark,chilling atmosphere... It's very well directed,kind of strange and has good music(New Wave/Gothic).

Ideal to watch once on tv or for an overnight rental.

GO SEE THIS,YOU'LL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

See ya!
