Unsettling tale of obsession benefits from black-comic undercurrents.

Mr. Balagueró is so overtaken by his villain that he becomes like César, displaying an eagerness to play the role of tormentor, which kills both the movie's pleasure and its flickering political subtext.

An instant must see for fans of the horror and thriller genres.

This is a crime story with little to no interest in the who or the why, but only the what and the how. It's a reverse-procedural, tracking not the solution of a crime, but all of its awful particulars.

It's a stalker movie. But some ingenious variations, shrewd direction, and a killer lead performance render it fresh and absolutely entertaining.

A nifty little thriller that dances on the boundary between plausible and preposterous.

Here is a unique fright flick that sets out to terrify and does it to capacity, eschewing fangs and claws to find chills and thrills in the unquenchable evil of human madness.

Excellent thriller. Very tense and a great story. The performance of the main character is nothing short of brilliant.

So it turns out that the best movie of the horror fest, so far, isn't really even what one might call a conventional horror movie. There's definitely… More
