Cast

Reception

The film was a box-office success in the Hispanic world and received mixed reviews from critics.[1] Jonathan Holland from The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "It’s clear from watching 7th Floor that the primary aim at the planning stage was to generate suspense. There’s enough in the fact of a father losing his kids to sustain the first hour, but once the question of the kids’ location has been solved, then Alejo Flah's script runs into all sorts of thoughtless credibility issues which only the most undemanding viewer will be prepared to excuse. “Don’t use your phone,” Rosales instructs Sebastian, and he doesn’t. So why does it then runs out of battery at an inappropriate moment?"[2].

At the Miami International Film Festival, the film competed for the "Grand Jury Prize".[3]
