This review is from: Devoured [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Lourdes is a young waitress in a New York restaurant she sends money home for her little brothers operation, sometimes she increases her earnings by apparently servicing some of the customers, the rest of the staff are horrible to her. She thinks the restaurant is haunted sometimes she has conversations with imaginary friends, she's clearly losing her mind. Devoured reminds me of Roman Polanski's Repulsion with a nice sympathetic girl going mad and killing those around her, nearly all the action takes place in the small restaurant and its cooking area. The cinematography is subdued occasionally almost black and white, its a grim and eerie movie and it comes as quite a shock when its revealed how Lourdes really gets her money. With marvellously gruesome shots of meals being prepared (it may put you off food for a while) and the discovery of a stack of corpses at the end it made me wonder if any of the customers got more than they bargained for. Great lead performance from Spanish actress Marta Milans.
