review by
Mike Haberfelner

Vampus (Saturnino García), a gravedigger with a canrivorous half-man/half-beast (Alberto Rivas) as a pet, is collecting corpses as pet food, and inbetween tells four tales of horror:
  • La Boda: For some reason, bride-to-be Marta (Elena Furiase) and best man-to-be Santi (Félix Gómez) find themselves locked into a basement, right beneath the place the wedding's held at. At first this seems just like a silly accident brought on by too much alcohol, later an evil ruse on Santi's bahalf as he has long been seccretly in love with Marta. But actually, there's something much more sinister behind the story ...
  • Cumpleaños: Two girls (Montse Plá, Dunia Rodríguez) get stuck at a haunted house ride at an amusement park - to soon notice there's some dangerously real haunts going on ...
  • Segunda Cita: Alex (Nacho Guerreros) takes his new acquaintance, blind Margot (Erika Sanz), to his house in the country to meet up with some friends. Only, the friends aren't coming because he has only made them up to lure her out - and the house might not be his either. And this is when things only start to get dangerous ...
  • A new pandemic that turns those infected into vampires has hit humankind - and a man (Federico Repetto) does everything to keep his wife (Vicky Jorge), who has turned, hidden from all welf-appointed vampire killers, and also tries to feed her the bet he can with the blood he can "find" ...

A fun horror anthology that covers a lot of ground when it comes to different approaches to the genre - from horror comedy to slasher to sci-fi horror to psycho thriller -, and yet, even despite five directors having worked on the film, comes across as a homogenous whole, basically because it's slickly filmed and stylishly directed throughout, and even if the stories of course vary a bit in quality, there's not a single actual dud in the movie, plus the acting is uniformly strong, while the film's overall macabre tendencies make sure this will resonate well with genre audiences.
