Description

Juan and Sonia have just moved in to a “new” house, a big sucker that has some spooky history. They have a new baby and are seemingly very happy until they start hearing strange noises in the baby’s room during the night. Thinking that the baby monitor is broken, Juan buys a new model, an infrared camera that’s hooked up to a small TV. He wakes up in the middle of that same night to see, on the sceen, a stranger standing over the crib—that’s about the time he basically loses it. Increasingly alienated from his co-workers and his wife, seemingly unaware of the strange visitor, Juan goes into a downward spiral of paranoia and fear for his family. When he hooks up with a hack paranormal expert, he might find the answer to his problems. Fantasia favourite Álex de la Iglesia (ACCIÓN MUTANTE, DAY OF THE BEAST) delivers effective photography and creepy visuals, especially in the infrared camera, in his contribution to PELICULAS PARA NO DORMIR (FILMS TO KEEP YOU AWAKE), the Spanish answer to the MASTERS OF HORROR TV series.
