In this suspenseful Spanish thriller, a film student's curiosity over an accidentally discovered "snuff film" places her in mortal danger. Madrid film student Angela's ordeal begins when she decides to write her thesis about violence in film. Her student adviser volunteers to search the university's film vault for her and it is he who accidentally finds a secret room and randomly picks up an unmarked cassette. He decides to preview it in the screening room and what he sees is so horrifying that he drops dead from heart failure. Angela finds him there and without thinking grabs the film he was watching. Back home she discovers it is a filmed account of the torture and death of a coed who has been missing for three years. Rather than be sensible and call the police, Angela begins her own investigation. Her first stop is the strange Chema, a student aficionado of hard-core porn and violent films. He sees the film and is able to identify the type of camera used. Sexy student Bosco has one and he was acquainted with the dead girl. Though he is a prime suspect, Angela is subtly drawn to him. This doesn't sit well with the jealous Chema. Bosco is not her only suspect. Castro, her new faculty advisor and Bosco's girl friend Yolanda may also have been involved. — Sandra Brennan (allmovie.com)
