Considered by many to be a psychological thriller, this film is loosely based on Roman Mythology and the book by French author, Theirry Jonquet, titled "Mygale," which translates to the word "Tarantula" in English. Directed by Spanish favorite, Pedro Almovodar, who also wrote the screenplay, its Spanish cast includes the stars Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, and Marisa Paredes. This is the first collaboration in over 20 years for Banderas and Almovodar. Additionally, popular Spanish songtress and international musical artist, Concha Buika, performs the two songs, "Se Me Hizo Facil" and "Por El Amor de Amar." It was shot in Spain on locations in and around the cities of Toledo and Madrid. Almovodar has described the film as "a horror story without screams or frights."
