The House of Snails La Casa de Caracol

  Macarena Astorga

  Spain, Peru, Mexico     104 minutes


In this wholly original take on the werewolf tale, novelist Antonio Prieto (Javier Rey) arrives at a remote mountain town in Southern Spain hoping to find peace and quiet to work on his next novel. Once there, he meets and falls for the alluring Berta (Paz Vega) and encounters an array of other eccentric citizens who find their way into his manuscript. But local color soon turns menacing when Antonio realizes the town is harboring a dark and terrifying secret, forcing him to question where reality ends and fiction begins.
