Did You Know?

Trivia

The actors were never given the script in its entirety so none of them knew of their character's fates, sometimes not until the day they were actually filming their scenes. This meant that the actors were - more often than not - stressed, nervous and apprehensive on the day of filming, ideal qualities for the film itself. See more »

Goofs

(at around 24 mins) The old man at the start says that their mobile phones, TV, etc. don't work but when Pablo and Angela go up to the third floor to get the keys (at around 1h) the TV is obviously on and working. See more »

Do you want some nightmares?
13 January 2008 | by danielmatrixSee all my reviews

This is truly a superb horror movie. I loved this movie so much I had to leave a comment. It has been a long time since I jumped off my seat a few times (way too many). It has some of the scariest scenes I have ever seen (you'll know what I'm talking about). The way it's filmed helps us to live this "nightmare" as it was for real, as if it was a news article. The "suspension of disbelief" works unlike some other titles I have seen. I'm a big horror movie fan and I must tell you: you have to see this. I'm overwhelmed, I'm frightened, I'm suspicious, I can't even sleep... It really scared me big time. There's one particular scene (you'll know, believe me) that I do not recommend for those who are easily impressionable. Go see it. One of the best horror movies I have ever seen.
