The big noise
around this gruesome horror is that it was filmed entirely on an iPhone. Ingenious... and almost entirely pointless, given that the results look exactly like every other found- footage film. Better, in fact – the effects are solid throughout and the gore is pleasingly practical.
Alas, the film itself is a very drab entry into the tourist- horror canon. Americans Peter and Tonio travel to Barcelona to try and get laid. They puke and piss and leer their way through a dull opening 20 minutes, before picking up a couple of girls. Unfortunately, one of them gives Peter a rather intimate and painful love bite... Cue a long, depressing hour of screaming, whimpering and blood.
Loud, obnoxious and boring, the film perfectly reflects its lead characters. A last- minute twist also miserably fails to convince.
Extras: None. Will Salmon
