Movie Review: The Bar (2017) October Horror Fest (28)

This was one of my favorite movies in this October Horror Fest marathon... It's a Spanish movie where we follow several people inside a Bar.  We've got not much information about it but basically a man is shot dead just outside the street and then another and everyone escapes the streets...

The'y got no more information and they start blaming one another about terrorism and stupid things. Then they find a guy in the bathroom dead from some unknown disease and the police/army surrounds the bar. As they turn on one another some are exiled to the basement where they try to escape by a small hole that leads to the sewers. 

The movie is funny but horrific (not because of monsters or spooky) but because people in stressful situations do a lot of stupid shit... It's really interesting in that way - like watching rats in a fire within a maze...

The police made fake news saying they were isolating that area because of a fire (no fire was existing at the time) and they went through the tunnels turning on each other until only the girl left (our main protagonist) - leaving several questions unanswered like what really happened? Was it a virus?  What happened after she left to the streets - after all she was traumatized and walking in the streets of madrid only with her bra... Enfin

Good movie, would love a sequel...
