One of the better movies I've seen lately. It keeps excitement during the whole movie, the plot is great and the actors even better. If you feel like watching a bit of a scary and mysterious movie, this is the one for you!

Builds up good, but goes nowhere

It has the darkness, it has some mystery and some twist. The setup is quite good, suspence is there, atmoshere is there, but the ending is just too abrupt. Even though it has some sense to it, it feels like lazy writing, like it was just cut and ends with nothing. Thus this movie never reaches the potential it initially had.

"Because you smell of the city."

Deciding to view two titles from the Abertoir Film festival,I began searching for a title to double bill. Earlier in the year seeing the outstanding The Barcelona Vampiress (2020-also reviewed), I was happy to spot another Horror from Spain streaming on the Abertoir Festival, which led to me watching snails crawl into darkness.

View on the film:

Drifting to the secluded cabin in the small town as a place to begin writing his next novel, Javier Rey gives an outstanding performance as Prieto, who Rey is unafraid from showing the nasty, snarling side of, as he snaps at the tightly-knitted locals, and confronts those questioning him over strange attacks which have been taking place around town.

Adapting her novel as Prieto attempts to write his next one, Sandra Garcia Nieto makes her scriptwriting debut with a a glorious mix of werewolf Horror blood lust, with a playful cynicism dripping over the abrasive psychological push-pull between the locals and Prieto.

The blossoming romance Prieto has with with local Berta (played with a fiery passion by Paz Vega) adds fuel to the fire from the residence of outsider Prieto also being the werewolf, which Nieto puts out with a deliciously macabre full circle ending.

Following each page of Prieto's writing, director Macarena Astorga presents a real page-turner of a feature film debut, via ultra-stylised dissolves of the werewolf attacks seeping into Prieto's writing sessions, leading to a blurring of reality and fiction in dolly shots catching the locals locking their eyes on the outsider every time he enters the town,as Prieto visits the house of snails.
