Wildly OTT exercise in bad taste from Pedro Almòdovar alumnus Iglesia, bizarrely blending Alien, Mad Max and The Patty Hearst Story.

An incompetent gang of deformed terrorists exact revenge on the smug ‘beautiful people’ and kidnap the daughter of a wealthy businessman, taking her to an alien planet. Shot largely in Madrid and Bilbao, the dry, yellowed surface of the planet ‘Axturias’ is the wild deserted region of Bardenas Reales in Navarra, northeastern Spain. Take the N121 south from Pamplona toward Tudela and see the strange wind-blasted desert east of the road near Arguedas.
