Mateo Gil, screenwriter of the acclaimed Spanish work Open Your Eyes (1997) directs this flashy, bizarre psychological thriller set during the stunning spectacle of Seville's Holy Week. Fledging novelist Simon (Eduardo Noriega) makes a living by writing crossword puzzles for the local newspaper and lives with spoiled rich kid weirdo Sapo (Jordi Molla). One day, Simon gets an ominous phone call informing him that if he does not include the word "adversary" in his next crossword there will be hell to pay. Meanwhile, a local leading figure is mysteriously killed when poison gas is released from a Virgin Mary statue. From there, the film spirals into a dazzling parade of nightmarish images such as a naked priest cozying up to another Virgin Mary and a legion of hooded penitents shooting toy guns at trapped and frightened Simon. Noted Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenabar provides the music. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

This is my first review on Blockbuster and any site. This is the worst piece of dung I've seen in a while. The movie starts out as a slow and unexciting who done it thriller. I can deal with that. Hey, it might get better. I won't ruin it for someone that is going to see this anyway, but let's just say that half way through the laser tag guns come out - literally. Do I really need to say more. Think of a bad Perry Mason episode with subtitles and mix in the American movie Gotcha.
