When Angela begins researching her thesis on violence in TV and Cinema she enlists the help of her tutor, Figueroa, who searches through the University library for violent material for her to watch. Upon finding Figueroa dead in the University projection room, Angela takes the tape he has been viewing and, too shocked to watch what she glimpses of it, forces herself to play it back with the contrast turned down, only allowing her to hear the bloodcurdling screams that fill the soundtrack. When a fellow student, Chema, persuades her to view the tape properly, they discover the horrifying truth of what she has in her possession: a "snuff" movie.
This used to be a difficult film to source. A tense thriller on snuff movies. Well worth it. Pace builds through the film. Its well directed and tight and builds to a sense of the usual inability to escape from the clutches. It is well worth getting this out to see a genre from a Spanish side rarely seen.
