Knowing very little about this title, I decided to rent it with my wife. Danish horror movies do not come along too often, and the last one we saw, Midsommer, was a pleasant surprise. I had expected the same creepy feeling in this movie - and especially as the main characters in this one are more mature. Unfortunately the script is not as strong in this movie. The actors are struggling with sentences that would never be said in real life, which is a shame. Dejan Cukic has done much better before, he has proved that with the right script and instruction, he can actually act. This movie is an embarrassment to his skills. The same thin cannot be said about Anne Birgitte Lind, who basically stinks in everything she has been in - including this movie! When does she realize that acting is more than reading lines from the script? The story makes no sense, and the characters actions are downright ridiculous. The movie fails on all accounts in my book! By the way, Zlatko Buric is a walking joke. He should have stopped his career after the first Pusher-film!
