From the director of REC comes another unnerving, and deeply unsettling Spanish horror.
Five years after a young girl was murdered, with her mother finally seeming to have started to recover, a telephone call once again shatters her existence: “Mummy, it’s me… come and get me”. Helped by an ex-policeman and a reporter expert in the supernatural, the mother sets out on a desperate search, the search for the terrifying truth laying dormant until now: a group of the occult that rejects its own name, the empirical science of evil, uninhabited desolate houses that conceal things, secrets. A trap of abominable evil. A truth that spreads its tentacles through time and space, from the horror of the Nazi holocaust to the occult fever in the London of the sixties and up to the present day. After years of lethargy, the horrific secret is about to be revealed. A number: 106, an abandoned motel. They might manage to find the child. Perhaps she’s alive and can be saved. But the horror is only just beginning
The professional career of this young film director, devoted to the terror genre, is short but intense. Born in Lleida in 1968, at a very early age he moved with his family to Barcelona, the city where he now resides. In 1991 he graduated in Sciences of Communication and then studied photography and film direction under the Argentinean Hector Fáver. Since 1992 Jaume has worked with various film-related magazines, this including co-editing and managing the Zineshock magazine, dedicated to underground cinema and counter-culture. On the radio he presents and directs ‘La espuma de los Días’ (‘Bubbles of the Day’) on L'Hospitalet Radio, where he also contributes as film critic. After filming on video ‘El Niño Bubónico’ (1991) and ‘La Invención de la Leche’ (1993), in 1994 Jaume wrote and directed the 35mm short film ‘Alicia’, which was chosen for and awarded prizes at numerous national and international film festivals. A year later he wrote and directed ‘Días sin Luz’, his second short film, which he also edited. Both films have been acquired by Canal+ Spain, Canal+ France, and Spanish television (TVE) for their ‘Metropolis and Brief Passions’ programmes. In the series ‘Nova Ficció’ (New Fiction), emitted by Catalunya television, he wrote and directed the episode ‘La Ciutat de la Sort’ (‘The City of Fortune’), produced by FDG. In 2002 Jaume directed and wrote THE DARK, starring Anna Paquin, Lena Olin, and Iain Glen, which was released in the UK by Buena Vista International. His latest productions are THE NUN (2005), and FRAGILE (2005), starring Calista Flockhart, and Richard Roxburgh.
