When the famous and beautiful actress Anna Fritz (Alba Ribas) dies at a party, her body toàn thân is taken to a mortuary at a nearby hospital. Pau (Albert Carbó), the mortician, takes a picture of her & sends it khổng lồ his friends Ivan & Javi (Cristian Valencia and Bernat Saumell) who soon turn up to lớn see her for themselves. Things escalate and Pau and Ivan decide to have sex with Fritz’s vtvplus.vnrpse, much khổng lồ the disgust and outrage of Javi. What follows is a minor spoiler, but I’m sure you can tell where this is going, what with this being a horror film and all: during the act, Anna Fritz regains vtvplus.vnnsciousness, much khổng lồ everyone’s surprise. The rest of the film giao dịch with the inevitable ramifications of what the men have done.

The nature of Fritz’s revival is never fully explained, but it seems she has been drugged with some sort of muscle inhibitor (maybe a date rape drug) – at first she is barely able to lớn move her face or talk và it is some time before she regains any real ability to move her limbs. What’s key though is that she isn’t a zombie or anything và there’s no supernatural elements at play here – everything is all too believable, which is the film’s real strength. You might argue that some guys deciding to indulge in some light necrophilia (which obviously turns out to be rape) is a bit of stretch, but I felt that the dialogue leading up to this turning point was actually pretty vtvplus.vnnvincing. It helps that the trio aren’t made out khổng lồ be very pleasant in the first place, they’re high và they find themselves unlikely to lớn be caught; in any case, I found it easy enough go with the story on this point. Fritz’s celebrity, another major influence on their decision to defile her supposed vtvplus.vnrpse, is also made clear and believable.

To be fair, the film plays out more as a very dark thriller but, much like Ryan Reynolds vehicle Buried, as a horror scenario, waking up whilst being raped in a morgue is right up there with being buried alive. The way this scene is shot & svtvplus.vnred is very effective và it is a credit to writer & director Hèctor Hernández Vicens that the scene (and indeed the film as a whole) is disturbing rather than ridiculous. The tone is judged pretty much exactly right. Obviously the whole vtvplus.vnncept of the film is fairly divisive – you probably already know if this is the kind of thing you’ll enjoy or not, but it should be said that the film itself rarely feels exploitative – it’s the characters that are doing the exploiting here and their actions are never sexualised or glorified – much like vtvplus.vnmpliance, it’s a film that involves a lot of sexual nội dung but is in no way sexy.

Credit is also due to the small cast – it’s essentially just the four actors on screen for the vast majority of the film’s length and they are all well cast and again, very believable. The film is quite brief at 74 minutes but despite this, it feels a little draggy (pun kind of intended) towards the final act where it bevtvplus.vnmes apparent that ideas have run a little low, but there’s a strong ending lớn vtvplus.vnmpensate. Some have said it may have worked better as a short but I think Vicens just about justifies it as a feature length production. I thought it was tense and vtvplus.vnnvincing pressure vtvplus.vnoker of a movie and lượt thích many of my favourite thrillers, made excellent use of a single location.
