“THE DEAD MOTHER is 30 years old and maintains its wickedness.”
Inside Pulse

“A masterful film that deserves to be much better known.”
Blueprint Review

Fearful the daughter of his murder victim would recognize him, a killer (Karra Elejalde, TIMECRIMES) kidnaps the woman for ransom. What threatens him more is the strange, tense bond he forms with his new victim. A nasty piece of work from Juanma Bajo Ulloa, this sophomore effort recalls the pitch-black works of the Coen Brothers and presages the Spanish genre boom of the late ‘90s. Co-starring French pop icon Lio. North American restoration premiere.
