Reviews

Five years after a young girl is murdered, when her mother seems to have started to recover, a telephone call once again shatters her existence: "Mummy, it's me". Helped by an ex-policeman and a reporter expert in the supernatural, the mother sets out on a desperate search for the terrifying truth, a truth that spreads its tentacles through time and space, from the horror of the Nazi Holocaust to the occult fever in the London of the sixties and up to the present day.  After years of lethargy, the horrific secret is about to be revealed. A number: 106, an abandoned motel. They might manage to find the child. Perhaps she's alive and can be saved. But the horror is only just beginning. One of the most effective horror films of recent years, ‘The Nameless’ is a superbly atmospheric film adapted from the acclaimed novel by Ramsey Campbell.

Format: DVD
It was only as the opening credits of this film rolled that I realized the story was based on a novel by Ramsey Campbell - one I had read a few years ago. The only thing I clearly remember about the novel is the horrible ending, which I described as a betrayal of the evil Campbell had spent so much time creating. This movie, on the other hand, does things absolutely right in my book, creating a bold, shocking ending that made me want to stand up and cheer - not for what actually happened, but because the filmmaker ended the film in such heroic fashion - American filmmakers always seem to cowardly sell out at the end of films. The Nameless is in fact a Spanish production (Los Sin Nombre), directed by Jaume Balaguero, the same man behind the film Darkness. The film is dubbed in English, but I have no complaints about the dubbing whatsoever.
I love European horror. There is a completely different mood and feel compared to American horror films, which at this point basically consist of the same few movies made over and over again. Watching unknown actors, I had no predilections as to where the story would take their characters. The story begins with the horrible mutilation and murder of a little girl, likely the work of some cult or other. Then, several years later, the child's mother Claudia (and I must say Emma Vilarasau gives a wonderfully distraught performance as the traumatized mother) receives a phone call from her daughter, begging her to come get her. She goes alone to the location, braves the absolute creepiness of the place, and finds enough evidence to make her think her daughter may actually still be alive.

I've been a massive fan of Ramsey Campbell for a long time now. I have even met him, and got his signature. After watching The Nameless which is based on Ramsey's novel. I was completely overwhelmed on how mind blowing and horrifying it is. It's such a shame it's not a widely well known horror film, however that does not stop it from being a masterpiece.

Like the novel it focuses on how one woman can be haunted by the death of her daughter, and will do what ever it takes to find out the truth. I once asked Ramsey on what he thought about the film, and he said ''It truly captures the feeling while remaining faithful to my story.'' If your a fan of Ramsey Campbell or horror in general I really recommend buying it!

5/5 stars.

I enjoyed watching this film a lot, it's a creepy horror thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. The performances are understated which works to accentuate the horror of the story. Along the way you experience some creepy moments. For me creepiness is the mark of a good horror film. All too often films rely on shock or gore to scare the audience, but for me creepiness is much more unsettling. And 'The Nameless' does this well.

If you like horror stories and don't mind subtitles then you should check this out.

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Mohammad A. Rahman on 7 Oct. 2006
Format: DVD
"Los Sin Nombre" (aka "The Nameless") is an outstanding Spanish horror thriller based on a novel by Liverpudlian author Ramsey Campbell. The film begins with a grisly discovery by police then moves forward in time to focus on a grieving, divorced mother trying hard to get on with her life but never quite getting over the horrific events of her immediate past. Suddenly she starts receiving mysterious phone calls from a desperate young girl begging her mummy to rescue her.

The mystery behind "Los Sin Nombre" unravels intelligently and unhurriedly with little in the way of excess. Grotesque images are kept to a minimum but are devastating when unveiled. The atmosphere is appropriately creepy and haunting throughout. Had this been made by Hollywood I'm sure it would have been mangled with a romantic subplot between the mother and the kindly detective who helps her. Thankfully it remains focused from start to finish and does not resort to a cop-out ending.

Format: DVD
I was so disappointed. I found the plot confusing and I really couldn't fathom out who was doing what or why for a lot of the time. Why was that photographer swanning around all over the place and what was that bleeding statue of the boy all about? So many confusing things not explained. Things weren't explained properly and the poor subtitiles didn't help with words wrong and missed out. Completely forgettable film. No lingering memories. Yet again, a modern horror film cannot compete with horror films from the 1970s.
