Personally, I REALLY liked this film. I liked it because not only am I from a large, Hispanic community in California, but also negates I love horror anthologies. Put those two factors together, you've got a somewhat relatable, interesting horror anthology that doesn't apologize for anything and just presents its content as is. Now, the content more specifically are three individual segments that vary from supernatural horror to realistic thriller-type horror, and each of then really feels like they understand the style of Mexican horror, in such ways as tone, visual presentation, writing, etc.

That all said, there's nothing but negative reviews on here, and I respect and understand that. Here's the thing though: don't go into this movie with preconceived notions, instead, go into this film with a blank and open mind, ahd as much interest as one can muster. As I said before, this film doesn't apologize and just presents it's content as is, and that's the most important point to understand prior to watching this film, just so that one feel the need to pre-compare, or otherwise formulate what they themselves wants the film to be better even watching it, as opposed to taking it as is, and that's the whole point I'm trying to make to you the viewer: watch this film with a blank and open mind from start to finish, and take the film all in as it is, and just as it is, then formulate your informed opinion.
