This gave me the worst nightmares ever!
20 January 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This is SO scary! And will be in Finnish TV again at 2005 in "YLE-teema" after many years of waiting from 1985. I'm wondering if it is as good as I remember...

Feeling in the series is like in "twin peaks" at the first time, but lot better. Maybe the familiar nordic surroundings are one reason why it was so scary for me.

My mom didn't let me watch this, but my stepmother did, and I had nightmares for many years. Sometimes I woke up screaming "Ingrid!"

This is something that everybody should see. And if it has gone too old, somebody should do a new version.

I am only afraid, that everything in this series is boring nowadays cause every element in the series has been used and maybe done better after 1985.
