KM 31: Kilometro 31 (2006, MEX/SPA) C-103m. SCOPE ** D: Rigoberto Castaneda. Starring Iliana Fox, Adrià Collado, Raúl Méndez, Luisa Huertas, Fernando Becerril, Mikel Mateos. Mexican-Spanish horror film about twins (both played by Fox), who are 'separated' when one of them falls into a coma after a road accident at ill-fated kilometer 31. Her sister investigates along with two friends, and they find out there may be a curse behind it. Darkly atmospheric chiller takes its cue from movies like JU-ON or other Spanish efforts of late and delivers some great shocks in unrelentingly eerie settings, but plot itself is rather weak. Still, worth watching for horror fans. Written by the director.
