Directed by Adrián García Bogliano
Aram is a wearied accountant with an unbearably dull existence. With a nagging wife who berates him for not being assertive enough, and a measly paycheck, he quietly suffers while awaiting a long-deserved promotion. But there's more to Aram than his mild-mannered demeanor lets on: he has been secretly devising a scheme to finally get what he feels he is owed. One day he asserts his power menacingly when he kidnaps a schoolgirl and keeps her tied up in an abandoned warehouse. What seems like the perfect plan soon unravels into his worst nightmare, and his carefully constructed scheme comes crashing down piece by bloody piece.

★★★★½ review by Waldo on Letterboxd
Still haven't seen a bad film from director Bogliano. The guy is not one to compromise. His stories are as intense as they come and I love him for that. A mild lawyer unlocks his most disturbing side in order to straighten out his life at work and at home. His criminal act unlocks another disturbing side but from his crime victim unleashing holy hell on everyone around. This is not for the innocent, evil runs wild here. Loved it!!!!
★★★★½ review by León ↯ Serratos on Letterboxd
He encontrado mi nueva película favorita de Adrián García-Bogliano.
¿Por dónde empiezo? Por la música, por la atmósfera que logra sostener con pulso experto durante todo el metraje, el gore, los personajes, el giro, los movimientos de cámara, la tremenda visión de ver a Molina... would you like to know more?

Soy muy muy muuuuy fan de AHÍ VIENE EL DIABLO pero cuando vi el trailer de ésta la neta no se me antojo mucho. Pero en fin confié en Bogliano y que bueno que lo hice! Gran película! Este dude es un pinche loco y lo agradezco muchísimo!

Quickie Review (Screams To Stream 3: Terror in Shuffle Mode)
Vengeance has come to Screams To Stream 3 and it’s coming on strong. Anyone who has seen the underrated werewolf movie Late Phases will get a kick out of writer/director Adrián García Bogilano’s follow-up to said film, a revenge thriller that will give you serious whiplash. Aram is a hapless accountant with a promotion that eludes him and a wife that won’t stop nagging him because she thinks that he’s not assertive enough but then he decided to show that he can grow a pair by meticulously planning the kidnapping of a young schoolgirl. The plan works out pretty well for him....until it doesn’t. The girl frees herself and now Aram is in for a world of pain and retribution. The first half of the movie plays like a predictable black comedy about a guy who gets no respect from anyone except the hot secretary at work but then the kidnapping plot kicks in and that’s when the movie takes a turn and becomes something worth watching. In short, the first half of Scherzo Diabolico is fairly standard but the second half is where the nightmarish and pitch black fun really begins. If you don’t mind subtitles, give it a watch.
Next up: ? (I live to see y’all sit on pins and needles to see what’s next and that’s not changing until it’s over)
★★★★ review by rotch on Letterboxd
Hay títulos increíbles, y luego, en otro nivel, está Scherzo Diabólico. Bogliano es un maestro para poner títulos que por lo general invitan a imaginar algo mejor de lo que terminamos viendo en pantalla. Y esta es creo la única que creo que se acerca. Así que es muy posiblemente mi favorita suya. Barreiro es un genial godín criminal, y el resto de los actores están a la altura. Si fuera quisquilloso diría que esto se descarrila un poco rumbo al final. Pero hay una buena dosis de gore de calidad como para que se me olvide.
