Movie Info

When a serial killer begins burying his victims in the salt fields of Santa Rosa de la Sal, police commander Trujillo begins to suspect that a misfit teenager may be responsible for the murders. When he's not working at his father's funeral home, adolescent misfit Victor produces savage, micro-budget horror films. Victor's behavior is suspicious and anti-social to say the least, but by focusing his investigation on the teenage kid with the morbid imagination, is commander Trujillo allowing the real killer to continue committing his grisly crimes unabated? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Bajo la sal

Good concept, but way too long. Might have been better had they edited some stuff out, and came to the point a little sooner...

The film is technically competent, but it's also so spectacularly boring, mainly due to its complete lack of direction with the story, that I felt physically ill. The stop-motion sequences were fantastic, but not worth it.

This was a well made mystery-thriller with a mediocre plot. But the skill in which this movie is made and the performances of the actors is worth a watch. Plus, while the movie within the movie is quirky in an odd way, it is actually fascinating in its production and context with thought about the character development. Azuela and Palanco both give great quiet performances and Zurito has that odd charisma for the weathered co-lead.

The director is someone I will be keeping track of. From what I researched, this was his first full length feature and it really seems like is already a well seasoned director. There is a nice touch to how he frames and reveals and I think he may have that gift for performances that people like Clint Eastwood and Darren Arnofsky have. This isn't the greatest movie, but hopefully a good start to a great career for so many involved in this one. So get in before a bandwagon starts.
