This Argentinian horror film consistently hits the right creepy points while exhibiting impressive gory effects created with extremely limited resources.

The scenario is absurd enough to play as satire, but no.

This spare, downbeat shocker shows considerable promise within the scope of its own modest ambitions.

Audience Reviews for Rooms for Tourists (Habitaciones para turistas)

This is a well done for the obviously small budget the picture with very good gore effects that won't let any gore fan down. Filmed in black and white helps hide the low budget feel. This Argentine film is certainly not perfect and the story is similar in some aspects to "Hostel" but the resolution of the movie is fresh and smart and offers suspense, claustrophobia and good use of lighting and style.
