Sure, every films wants to be like “Paranormal Activity”, this one isn’t but doesn’t disappoint either. Bloody Disgusting Selects picks up this Spanish shakey cam film and they should be proud with their decision. This film is creepy and very suspense. It doesn’t show much and leaves you want more but that is what adds to the suspense. It runs a very short 70 minutes put I feel it works well and doesn’t overstay it welcome.

The story is about about a family who is spending the holiday at their summerhouse.  Cristian and July Quintanilla, brother and sister, start investigating a local urban legend in a wood maze close by.  It turns out that the legend might be real and the kids are in for more than they expected.

The first half of the movie sets up and introduces us to the characters. The last half hour grabs you and doesn’t let you go. The ending is not expected and really awesome. Even though the film is supernatural it is believable and scary. The only extras on the disc is a short 15 minute making of feature hosted by director Fernando Barreda Luna. He talk about the the production, casting, shooting and locations. Even though it is short it definitely informative and enjoyable.
