This review is from: The Body [DVD] (DVD)
I had a night in on my own (fiance at a xmas party) and stumbled on this via Blinkbox (they were offering rental for 50p!). I used to study Spanish part time and I've always enjoyed Spanish language films so I thought I would give it a go. Fantastic. Like most of the people on here, the ending took me by surprise (though there were a few hints in retrospect). I concur that this is NOT a horror movie but a very well crafted thriller and were a few times when I literally jumped out of my sofa (perhaps not the best idea to watch it in the dark on my own but there you go!). The directing and acting is first class; I'm no expert on Spanish language cinema but I've seen a few films and none of the actors are household names, but they all did their job tremendously well. What I also loved is the fact that with essentially a couple of locations and a very limited cast (and probably a very limited budget), the film keeps going at an almost frentic pace, never letting go. You will be totally immersed in the story. Absolutely brilliant.
