I was blown away by this film. The acting is incredible, the storyline is simple but yet very original and insanely creepy. This is definitely one of the best thrillers I’ve seen in quite a while and I’ve been looking for it since its release in 2011 and it was definitely worth the wait.
The story follows cesar. He works as in an apartment building as a concerige. He has all the keys to all the apartments and seems like a pleasant and happy to help sort of a guy. What one of the residents doesn’t realise is that cesar has been repeatedly sneaking into her apartment at night hides under her bed until she falls asleep and starts doing some really disturbing stuff. That’s all i will say about the storyline because its best if you really don’t know what’s gonna happen.
This film isn’t very graphic nor is it all that violent but man it’s one hell of a film and the best thing about it is its simplicity. It will get under your skin and it will stay under your skin (hiding) and it is guaranteed to leave a mark on you.
Written and directed by “Jaume balageurò who has also helmed “rec”, “rec 2” and currently wrapping up the fourth and final instalment of the “rec” franchise, “rec4 apocalypse”
This is expert film making in every aspect. The script, cinematography and the direction is just fantastic and you will definitely be left feeling uneasy. A dark and disturbing thriller that is brilliant on so many levels. Jaume balageurò is definitely a director to keep our eyes on.
