A really creepy movie!
13 January 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I've only seen two other Swedish horror movies in my life (Det Okända and Besökarna), but this is the best Swedish horror movie! I have only seen it once, and that was enough! I had nightmares for weeks, and miss Wagner kept haunting me in my nightmares ...

Gia and her class are on vacation on Gotland, when something starts to happen in the house. Gia, who just got out of mental hospital after being witness of a young girl getting killed by a train, is the only one who claims that there actually are ghosts in the house! The rest of the class first believes that she is about to freak out, when they also realize there are ghosts! Thrill and adventure until the very last moment. A great surprising end on top of all!

The thing is however - due to the rumors of being a "true story", it gives this film somewhat of a psychological twist; does all that stuff really happen? Or is it just in Gias head, and all the kids being so afraid, they start to believe in the unbelievable? And all the things going on, one can't stop wounder when one finished watching - what EXACTLY did happen to the class? They all disappeared, that's for sure, but how? Did they all drown and got eaten by fishes, or what?
