After watching Timecrimes this year for the first time it's pretty obvious that Nacho Vigalondo knows how to build tension and creates an intellectually stimulating film that preserves the need for gratuity. His work will be seen on ABCs of Death 2 and V/H/S Viral soon, but until then we will have the chance to enjoy his newest work, Open Windows. I'm not sure which makes me happier: seeing Elijah Wood in yet another dark fantasy picture or appreciating Sasha Grey's superior beauty.
Check out the trailer because just reading about this one didn't quite do it for me. The music sounds friggin' awesome.
Full release below.

Starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey, Open Windows, uses a unique visual language with webcams and live feeds to tell a nail-biting story in real time. "Some years ago my producers asked me to come up with a movie in which social networks and the language of the Internet would feature heavily. I made a counter-proposal: taking the concept to its limit by writing a film that took place entirely on the desktop of a computer, pushing the envelope of the production to make it a really unique adventure," said Vigalondo.
The film premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival and was partially filmed in Austin, TX, using the Alamo Drafthouse and its annual genre film festival, Fantastic Fest, as the backdrop.
Oscar®-nominated writer-director Nacho Vigalondo(The ABCs of Death, Extraterrestrial, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller OPEN WINDOWS. Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he's won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey,Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience). But when Jill refuses to honor the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell, Wild Bill, Pusher) makes an offer he can't refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing-and no one-are as they seem.
