Photophobic teen and mum flee the sweltering city for the Spanish mountains

Photophobic teen (Junio Valverde) and mum (Mar Sodupe) flee the sweltering city for the Spanish mountains, only to find strange sheep-slaughtering afoot in the woods, of which Valverde is soon suspected. So goes the clunky set-up to Isidro Ortiz’s otherwise effective horror, which plays like a perkier, more exotic Outcast. Once the pieces are in place, there’s 45 minutes of tense lost-in-the-forest kills and a genuinely alarming home-alone sequence. Then creepy eventually gives way to convoluted, but it’s still a classy little genre twist.
