Bad news - While considerably better than Hollywood's current formulas, it would appear that Spanish films also have formulas and therefore, watching several close together becomes repetitive.
Thankfully that saves me the trouble of reviewing each individual movie, so I'll skip forward to the ones I found memorable.
"The Baby's Room" essentially is about an old house, in which the occupants, having recently moved there, start hearing mysterious voices and later, images of a mysterious man watching their baby. Is the house haunted? Actually it becomes very weird.
"To Let" features a couple in search of an apartment. However, the place they're checking out might not be quite as harmless as it seems, as the owner clearly has issues. This film has much faster pacing than the other films in the collection.
The above two were very good with setting atmosphere!
Aside from lacking variation in general - even with their varied themes many similarities are present in these films - there isn't any significant downside to the collection. I'd suggest spacing out watching these because, despite providing what's lacking from most big-budget horror films, watching these shortly after each other will feel repetitive.
I give them a collective score of 20/30, which should be 3.3 stars which should round down becoming three stars, however with four decent films and three good ones, the collection feels better than the combined sum of its parts.
