A great horror flick! It's suspenseful and the acting is great. There's also a nice little twist at the end that could be considered somewhat predictable, but worked for me.
The version I watched was offered in Spanish with English subtitles. While some may not enjoy this format, I assure you that after a few minutes, and once you become involved in the story, it will be a worthwhile, rewarding cinematic experience.
A beautiful woven fairytale type of setting in modern-day times. You have a young kid that suffers from photophobia, an intense allergy to light, especially sunlight. The old and new tease saying something in the sense of vampire. He's just a kid with skin problems and the sun burns him creating people to gossip.
The movie is brilliantly acted and vividly created in the hair-raising department. There's a darkness to it. An underlining creepy, evil campfire tale.
Your main character Santi moves to a new town where the days are short and the cloud cover hides the sun most of the time. In the new town Santi and his mother are outsiders. The home they live in, they discover that a German family used to live there but there's a mystery and suspense that has been denied the truth to the people.

& then all downhill. At one point it turned into the Blair Witch Project (as another reviewer mentioned)& then a dopey horror movie. The ending was very stupid. It made no sense. Read morePublished on October 26, 2012 by Amazon Buyer

It's going to take more than a conveniently scheduled night school and a pair of sunglasses to assist Santi in coping with photophobia (not an actual fear of sunlight; just overly... Read morePublished on December 31, 2010 by Dr. Nocturna
