Storyline

Ten years ago four students were killed at a school, the killer was arrested and put in jail. Now, a couple of students have decided to do an essay on the murders. They get in touch with the killer who claims that he's innocent and that the principal is in fact the real killer. They take his word for it and decide to break into school one late night to find proof. What they don't know is that someone doesn't want the truth to come out and as the night falls, they soon realize that they're trapped inside the school with a vicious serial killer.

embarrassing
21 September 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I finally saw this new try to make a Swedish slasher and I was extremely disappointed. The story was confusing and the actors was so wooden that even me seems like a "Laurence Olivier" in comparison. The worst thing was, of course, that the murder scenes was so amateurish filmed that there wasn't any sense of danger, violence or pain. There was just someone that pointed the camera against the make up-effect and thought that it looked cool. The editing was beyond bad and the unintentional comedy wasn't even funny.

And pink blood? Strange! It's a hard thing to produce an indie-movie without money, but some people just shouldn't come near a camera. I think their next movie, The Griefing, will be better. I hope so anyway.
