In a movie theater, spectators are watching a screening of The Mummy, a hardcore horror movie. But gradually, murders like the ones in the movie are committed in the theater…

With his peculiar style laced with dark humor, transgression and baroque poetry, Bigas Luna (The tit and the moon, Poodle, Jamón, Jamón , The Ages of Lulu)  takes on the horror movie genre and its codes, that he subdues, dominates and twists in a meta didactic game, crafted with the old disquieting faces of Zelda Rubinstein (Poltergeist) and Michael Lerner (Barton Fink). No doubt that Wes Craven remembered this one ten years later for Scream.
