This film was flirting with perfection for me. It’s a textbook example of how to build tension and keep it going throughout the entire movie.
Luis Tosar puts on a sickeningly realistic performance that boasts up an already incredible script. His character is this unstable complex mess of depression, sadism and sociopathy. He’s the worlds worst nightmare, hiding in plain sight.
This is instantly one of my favorite horror movies, period. We get so many films every year that strive to push the limits of body counts and gore. It’s refreshing to look back and watch something centered around extreme sexual deviance. The violence in this film is intimate and genuinely unsettling.
I can’t recommend this enough.
