Storyline

14-year-old Lulu moves to a small provincial town with her mother and younger brother. One night, her brother is struck by a beam of white light - actually the spirit of Herman Hartmann from the 19th-century. To her despair, Lulu realizes that Herman has possessed her brother, and the two of them are whirled into a fevered adventure. Joined by Oliver, a rich kid, and Richard, a disillusioned clairvoyant and inventor, they take on the dark, supernatural forces gathering over the town - evil from deep in the land of the dead, determined to take over the world and see them die.

Almost Perfect Adventure
4 March 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I went in to see this movie, not knowing what to expect, but went out totally blown away. I am a fan of the fantasy-genre, which of course helps, but still, I was impressed. First of all, the special effects are awesome. The best I have seen, except for LOTR and maybe Harry Potter. Second, the acting is very good, especially Lars Mikkelsen as the super-villain (played with a very nice edge, even more than usual for the genre) and Lukas Munk Billing as the possessed little boy. But what impressed me most was the writing. The dialog is hilarious throughout the movie, with a very brilliant dark humor, but at the same time doesn't compromise the sense of doom or fall back on kliché (too much). This movie takes itself seriously and it doesn't talk down to you, as is so often seen in kids-movies. And that makes it a very scary movie. I saw kids at 11 and 12 in the cinema, and they had no place there. Unfortunately, the final cutting could have been a little better. A little of the tension disappears at times, but still almost a masterpiece. Go see it!
