Goofs

In the film, Callahan's character is seen playing with a Rubick's Cube. The film takes place in 1974, but Rubick's Cube was not available in the markets until 1977 as a limited edition in Budapest only, known as the Magic Cube, and until 1980 internationally, when it was re-named "Rubick's Cube" after its inventor.

Very good "Found Footage" Film
18 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just saw it yesterday and it is one of those movies that are original and to the point, as it was filmed on a 8 mm camera it looks kind of dark and mysterious and it works perfectly with the movie, it is the first film by this director and I would say that he has a lot of potential, it is actually the first Mexican-Horror movie that I watched and I definitely give it two thumbs up!
