I'm a big fan of Dennis Jürgensen. I try to read nearly everything he does, and enjoy the vast majority of it. And some of his stories would make for damn good movies. That's why it's disappointing when *this* is all it amounts to when it is attempted. This steals "worst yet" of the three from Mørkeleg. I'm starting to think that it's Schmidt; as much as it pains me to say, this reuses the effects that worked in the other two films they made together, in spite of it being a *completely* different style of horror. You don't assign a POV(however many graphics you add to make it eerie) to a ghost! That takes away from the mystique, which is a quality that this could desperately use. Yes, fine, you shot it with a fish-eye lens, ooh, look at how vaguely strange it looks... seriously, Martin, put the camera down if you aren't done playing around with the tools. It's a stage that everyone working in this industry needs to get past, before he expects actual audiences to take him seriously. Stuff similar to that appeared in Sidste Time, and it was easier to forgive, because that was completely different. That one was about exactly what is happening, not whether or not something is occurring. This flick would be far better if subtlety was applied. The paranormal phenomena are overly obvious, and thus(to the people in this) impossible to ignore(and one or two are unintentionally hilarious), the psychic is ridiculously simplified, and a couple of the setups for scares are just plain clumsy. This isn't all that engaging or terrifying. The plot starts out OK, but in the last fifteen minutes or so, it degenerates into a senseless mess. Was that really the twist? I feel like the ending belongs to another picture. The characters aren't interesting or entirely credible. Dialog, as well as several of the jokes, might have worked on the page, and they fall apart when spoken. The humor is hit and miss, and this definitely does hold a bit of good material. Acting is reasonable at best. The kid is utterly unconvincing. There is a little disturbing content, sensuality and violence in this. The DVD holds an amusing and informative commentary track(with the director, the writer, the producer and a crew-member I don't know the English term for). Furthermore, there's Blaffer(a short also by the guy who helmed this, and it's not half bad), premiere footage, a trailer for this and one for The Amityville Horror, for anyone patient enough to work out the maze(!) necessary to get to the special features menu. I recommend this solely to those looking to support those who made it. 5/10
