Overnatural suspense
2 April 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A young couple rents a large, old flat in Copenhagen, and to afford to fix it, five other 20-somethings move in with them. The landlord, however, introduces a sixth tenant, Miriam, who is found dead the day after they have their first party in the flat, and nobody can remember a thing. This is the beginning of a mystery, including a shaman, a former polar expedition and something resembling a monster in the basement.

The series reminds me somehow of Lars von Trier's "Kingdom" series, with mostly hand-held camera, pale colours and several crossing conflicts developing throughout the series. It also resembles Nicolai Winding Refn's other works: the "Pusher"-triology, "Bleeder" and "Fear X" in that it focuses around relatively young Copenhagians whose destinies are not controlled by themselves.

The series surely has its moments, and leaves you wanting to see what happens next. As the series deals with the supernatural, there are of course plots which cannot be explained by reason alone. Still, some of the plots are too unrealistic even within the setting. Suspense is, however, a keyword. As such, I would give the series a strong 7 out of 10.
