Hector (Karra Elejalde) has just moved into his dream country home with wife (Candela Fernandez). He is relaxing on a lawn chair outside of his new home surveying the nearby hillside through a pair of binoculars, when he catches sight of what appears to be a nude woman amidst the trees. Hiking up to investigate, he is attacked by a sinister figure whose head is wrapped in a grotesque, pink bandage. Fleeing in terror, he takes refuge in a laboratory atop the hill, where a lone attendant (director Nacho Vigalondo) ushers him in to a peculiar scientific contraption. He emerges what seems to be moments later, only to find that he has traveled back hours in time, setting in motion a brain-twisting, horrifying chain of events when he inadvertently runs into himself.
Director Nacho Vigalondo was nominated for an Oscar for his live action short film 7.35 in the Morning and Timescrimes is soon to be remade in the English Language, with David Cronenberg mooted as a possible director.
