The movie starts with a terrific and chilling segment that has almost no relationship to the rest of the film. Soon, however, we are introduced to Jaime and Marta--an affluent couple moving into a new suburban estate with their teenage daughter. Fernando Cayo is excellent as the harried father, and Ana Wagener is quite effective as the stressed-out mother. The family is experiencing typical middle class woes. Daughter Isa (Manuela Velles) wants to go out with friends, mama wants a family celebration. In the midst of routine family discord, however, all heck breaks loose as three men storm the home. Motivated by money, one of the intruders take Jaime off to empty ATM accounts while the other two stand watch over the women. Before the night is through, the tension and violence continues to escalate.Read more ›
The further you get into the film the more you get immersed into the story,it's as if you are there.Brilliant camera angles and infectious acting take it even further up the Indie film chain.
The ending of this movie left me breathless and truly shocked.It wasn't a gore fest but there are some very very brutal and gory scenes one in particular that will stay with you for quite some time.I say buy it because it is a film you can watch again.
The intruders are like many we have seen in films such as this before.
The good one ,who wants no bloodshed,the sociopath that of course could care less and the middle man who is neither here nor there just being part of the team,somehow this manages to do it better than most.
Amazing genre piece.
I was a bit disappointed that my only option to watch the movie was an English dub. The dubbing wasn't bad, but I would've much preferred to watch this in it's original Spanish. I can't comment if the DVD contains the original audio track or not.
Now to the movie.
This movie was pretty horrific and honestly uncomfortably scary. This was not a "fun" horror movie by any means. The victims don't muster up superhuman strength to beat the stuffing out of their tormentors and there is nothing funny about what's going on during the movie.
It's dark, brutal and gets quite nasty. The movie is very to the point.... a normal family moves into a nice house and 3 masked men unexpectedly show up and mayhem ensues. There isn't a lot of character development, and the men break into the house for no other reason other then to steal money. The family is targeted randomly and basically it's a "will the family survive or won't they" kind of deal.
The pacing is tight and clocks in around 90 minutes. Kidnapped is also well-filmed and well-lit with some stellar use of split screen during certain key moments. This movie certainly looked like it had a budget.
The tension and the suspense are intense to say the least and It's been a while since I've been genuinely frightened during a scary movie. It's weird, since the movie is so similar to the Strangers and those kinds of home invasion movies, but there is something about this flick that really grabbed me and scared me in a way that the Strangers did not.
I found myself yelling (more than once) "What are you doing?!??" "PICK UP A **^&$* weapon now!!" "RUN!" "Bite him!Read more ›
