A woman goes blind and kills herself when she realizes all remedies have failed. Or did she? Or did they? The film by Guillem Morales (apparently another protégée of Guilermo del Toro) sets up a chilling atmosphere where you don’t really know what to most afraid of: blindness, strangers in the house, ghosts even, crazy neighbours, hospitals and doctors … it serves plenty of phobias, and most of them worked for me. The idea of going blind while somebody is stalking me does not belong to those thoughts making me comfortable at all. This is not consistently a great thriller or horror movie – but it is enough of either to make pleasantly uncomfortable watching at night, and make you feel wonder whether you really should go down the basement to fetch another drink…
