Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Spanish theives attempt to elude the authorities by disappearing into the Basque countryside, only to fall under the spell of witches making preparations for an arcane ritual in this outrageous horror comedy from Álex de la Iglesia (Common Wealth, Ferpect Crime). It was supposed to be a simple gold heist, but when the bullets start to fly, José (Hugo Silva) and Tony (Mario Casas) hail a taxi, and speed off into the mountains. Further complicating matters is the fact that the robbery has taken place on one of the rare days that divorced José has custody of his young son Sergio, who is about to take the ride of his life. Later, just when José and Tony think they've made a clean getaway, they stop off at a rustic tavern in Basque country. Although at first the locals seem merely eccentric, it's soon revealed that in these mountains dwells a coven of witches, and the time has come to carry out an ancient rite. Meanwhile, with a pair of bumbling cops gradually closing in, the terrified thieves encounter a sexy witch gone rogue -- but even she may be no match for José's insufferable ex-wife.
