Totally OK
4 October 2000 | by (Bälinge, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This low-budget film is quite good, I must say. It smells Blair witch long way, but still it contains some new cool and different things. The actors is totally OK, and the dialog is sometimes really funny and way above average! This film is not so scary, Blair witch is far more frightening, but still it is very watchable. A big plus for director Michael Hjort!

The mark: 3 out of 5.
