Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca's family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca's loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form.

OK so this is my first review of a movie on IMDb. Usually i don't write
reviews, but this movie is such an embaracing to the "supposed" horror
genre. That i had to write a few lines. In the first place i don't
understand the raving reviews about the movie. Really?? Do you even
know what is a storyline, or good acting, or movie Direction? Just
because the movie is shot in black and has slow tempo it doesn't make
it a work of art, nevertheless a good (horror) movie. In the second
place what was that? A movie really? Do you call that a movie? This was
just a total mess, dumb, stupid, dull, full of bad clichés and wanabe
pseudo artistic camera angles. This movie has no story at all, just a
bunch of stupid actions that someone decided to write and film.
Everything seems forced and its hardly convincing, the actors, the
characters, the "story", even the music performed by Amália Rodrigues
they achieved to murder. And to call this an horror genre...Please!
More like a bad comedy.
