Not his best, but similar to other films in his catalog

The Movie Man says:

Intriguing character study inching into horror territory “Scherzo Diabolic,” is a thriller about a mild-mannered man who sets in motion a disturbing plan for vengeance. Aram (Francisco Barreiro) is a low-paid accountant living a dull existence, putting in overtime hours without getting paid for them. With a nagging wife who berates him for not being assertive, he suffers inwardly while awaiting a long-deserved promotion. Though outwardly he is quiet and unassuming, Aram is secretly devising a scheme that will finally get him what he feels…

The Movie Guy says:

BEST LAID PLANS OF MICE AND ACCOUNTANTS Aram (Francisco Barreiro) is an unrewarded accountant who does good work. He quietly schemes to get what he believes is owed to him. This includes kidnapping the boss’ (Jorge Molina) daughter (Daniela Soto Vell). The film follows the home break-in formula of kidnapping and revenge. It is the last half hour which makes the film worth watching…unless you like nudity.Daniela Soto Vell plays a great teen on a revenge binge even if the whole plot was not realistic. It has dark humor…
