Best Polish horrorfilm
27 October 2008 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

It's one of the first Polish movie that is fully devoted to occult and parapsychology. It's pretty difficult in reception and it's definitely one of these forgotten movies. Action takes place in Sopot, where Wagner who is some kind of fortuneteller and his sister who is a medium. They detect presence of a few people which are guided by insanely powerful medium. Those people meet in Sopot (where there is famous Polish pier shown later) but while controlled they are unaware what they did or what are they doing in that location. Later, an investigation carried out by detective and his deputy that sworn his loyalty to Nazis results in conclusion that this is repetition of a cycle in which... The movie is accompanied by excellent music which enhances the atmosphere of the mystery. Interestingly, casual dialogs are without any background music. In addition to that we got some historical background when Hitler started to rule in Germany along with the party of the Nazis (NSDAP). To summarize, we receive a very original Polish production, however it will be difficult to examine for those who don't like movies concerning psychological things rather that gore and action. A must see for Polish horror lovers.
