El Segundo Nombre * Franciso Plaza * 2002

the second name

When I saw this DVD in the videoshop I thougt that it was of the director of “Los Sin Nombre”, but I was mistaken. It is a Spanish film, but spoken in (bad) English. “El Segundo Nombre” is supposed to be a dark, ‘religious’ thriller in the vein of “Se7en”, but is it doesn’t come close to it. The story is about a woman whose father commits suicide. Later his body is stolen from his grave and it was later found back ritually mutilated. Daniella wants to find out why. Then the story starts to twitch, bringing up a centuries old Jewish sect in which ritual sacrifice is still obliged. A pretty dull film.
