Review of "The Dark Hour" ("La Hora Fría")

Pretty nice review in The Lucid Nightmare blog.

"With all its high concept ideas, the film works on the basic level of a brutal zombie film with a haunted house kind of edge. It never strays from being a genre film, for the atmosphere is thick and never lets up as it focuses on the moral decay of humankind when pushed to the limit and faced with the worst. It's refreshing to see a film like this, that has something more to say underneath the subtext of the film, while at the same time being able to keep that overwhelming horror tone. I'd have to highly recommend this film to anyone that enjoys a good old fashion horror film, that isn't afraid to have something mentally challenging going on under the hood. It's ambitious, bold, and devastating, never compromising for the easy way out and never straying from its focused attempt at telling a deep and intriguing story. Loved it!"
