From Everybody:


Excellent thriller that keeps the audience wondering who is the serial killer. A few scenes are short but lurid. Yet for the most part the sense of horror is achieved indirectly rather than by the sight of corpses. Right from the beginning, the horror of a violent death is never seen but felt. Actors were good.

Ángela (Torrent) is a film student at the Madrid's University Complutense. Searching for research material for her thesis (hence the film's title) on audio-visual violence, she attains the friendship of Chema (Martínez), a fellow student and introvert with an encyclopedic collection of violent and pornographic films.

After her professor dies while watching a film she steals the videotape, discovering that it is a snuff film featuring a girl whom Chema recognizes as a former student at the university - and a former associate of current student Bosco (Noriega). Investigating the origins of the tape, they are drawn into the operations of a chilling snuff ring.
