Crimen Ferpecto, Álex de la Iglesia's seventh feature film as director and second as a producer with Pánico, was released in October 2004. It returns to the black comedy of El día de la bestia, Muertos de risa and La comunidad, and, in many ways, is a compendium of the earlier films, with its sudden violence, explicit and exaggerated misogyny, and vicious and none-too-innocent children. In addition, the film recycles images and motifs from the earlier films. This is a cinema that pulls against the ‘ontology of the photographic image’ identified by André Bazin. According to Bazin, the cinema has a privileged relation to the real, and ‘enjoys a certain advantage in virtue of this transference of reality from the thing to its reproduction’.
