Palabras Encadenadas (2003, SPA) C-89m. ** D: Laura Maná. Starring Dario Grandinetti, Goya Toledo, Fernando Guillén, Eric Bonicatto. Interesting but artificial psycho thriller drama about professor Grandinetti, who has abducted his ex-wife, a psychiatrist, and tells her that he has become a serial killer and she will be his 19th victim. This leads to a psycho-battle a la Starling and Lecter. Some intriguing twists throughout keep this bubbling. From the producer of THE MACHINIST (2004). English title: KILLING WORDS.
