Small and almost forgotten Finnish horror flick is something you should not miss. If you are tired to death with supernatural monsters and over-intelligent psychos who always manage to reach their goals this small movie may be a welcome alternative. Everything that is somehow scary is that in a natural way and you can imagine it to happen to you too. But this does not mean that the film is boring, the plot is full of clever little quirks that keep your interest up all the way up to the end.
It is a good solution that at the start the film could induce you to make false assumptions in regards to the plot. I cannot talk of clichés because Finnish film industry hasn't made too many horror movies and this one shouldn't be compared to foreign ones too harshly. What the film does not really attempt to support is the Finnish landscape and culture which results in that the community appears as a bit stereotypic one. The best work is done by Kari Sorvali who seems to transform into the village idiot role exceptionally well. If a horror movie can be 'cute' this one perhaps is it?
