El bar

The Bar

 
The Bar is a disturbing, claustrophobic, and frenetic thriller with the visual power that comes with an Álex de la Iglesia film. This renowned genre director took inspiration from Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 and Buñuel’s Exterminating Angel and sprinkled it with his own particular brand of black humor.
