Jan Verheyen is a capable movie director. But this is perhaps the worst movie I've seen in a while that pretends to be better than it is.
The plot lacks all credibility. The acting is well done, but that does not make the plot any more credible. The credibility issue starts as soon as 'Eva' kisses 'Dieter' on the mouth at their first accidental meeting - him tripping over two thieves who stole her camera.
It is as if the movie does not know what it wants to be: a murder mystery thriller or a psycho slasher movie. The murder mystery is solved halfway through the movie already. And the psycho slasher part takes itself too serious and lends too much from Hollywood in a world that just is not that scary.
If this movie was supposed to keep me in suspense, it failed utterly. It might have worked when I was 10 though.
