Horror, supense and a mistery among those group of young vacacioners who by accident arrived to a very old Sanatorium building where they lived the most terrifying experience.
Synopsis The Sanatorium of Murcia;
In Sierra Espuña, Murcia, the Sanatorium of Murcia is abandoned. Place that hosted the stay of lepers and patients with tuberculosis. The less serious occupied the ground floor of the building and the more serious the upper floor, from where they could never leave. It is said that the first stone of its construction was placed in 1913 and with the sole help of the hands of the neighbors it was finished in 1917. In 1962 it was closed and with it all the sick people, who were forgotten, were abandoned to their fate. Now, in 2017, three couples of American tourists, cross the slopes of the narrow road of Sierra Espuña when the engine of the rented van stops purring. Carlos, an unbalanced mental, is pursuing something with his hunting shotgun and his crossbow. Are they. The three couples formed by boys and girls who do not exceed twenty-three years, are forced to enter the forest in search of a refuge to spend the night. When their lanterns focus on the façade of the Sanatorium they can not believe what they are seeing, although one of them is well documented about the Sanatorium. But, what they do not know is that there is a legend that there are laments heard there, they see souls and their bodies. And worst of all, there is the lady in black, who they say, walks every night in the halls of the Sanatorium. Death lurks in the most terrifying way imaginable. Succumbing to your own fear.
A terrifying story in which nothing is what it seems and what kills you is not a bullet or the edge of a knife, but your own fear, terror, terror.
