Spanish Movie is a 2009 Spanish parody film directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera and written by Paco Cabezas. The film was conceived as a Spanish version of the spoof films that were appearing at the time, continuing the trend originated by the Scary Movie franchise.

The production makes spoofs of several successful Spanish horror/drama films in the box like Los Otros, El Orfanato, Alatriste, Abre los ojos, Los lunes al sol, Volver, Mar Adentro, El laberinto del fauno and REC. It features a cameo from Leslie Nielsen.

The production started on 23 February 2009 in Barcelona and was released in cinemas on 4 December of that year.


Ramira (Alexandra Jiménez) works in Laura's house (Silvia Abril) as maid and nanny of her kids: Simeón and Ofendia (Óscar Lara & Laia Alda). Unfortunately, Ramira kills the child because he saw the sun despite suffering from photodermatitis. The woman tries to hide and lies to the mother about the death of her son.
