Dulce Hogar (2018)

In a rundown building, Susana, the doorkeeper, sets out to collect the monthly rent. From the first floor to the highest balcony, the excruciating nature of the transaction jeopardizes the safety of the lodgers.

Set in a mysterious sun-scorched crumbling tenement where the rent is paid in a horrifically human fashion, Olmos capitalizes on the audience’s lack of information to build suspense as the residents run out of time to collect payment and disaster strikes
— Anatomy of a scream
The film’s set is also very impressive and allows the audience to immerse themselves into the grim situation of the residents.
— Morbidly Beautiful
Olmos’ work has a very creative script... the director also demonstrates her talent for telling a story by making everything visually interesting.
— Horreur Québec
