In a wrong genre, 25 September 2012
Author: Pétur Arnórsson from Iceland

Well, I was really looking forward to watch this flick, I am a Die-hard horror fan. But this movie is just boring. No suspense, NO horror. Why is this movie even consider a horror movie! Drama and weird the genre should be. It's like one of thous movies when you can strangle a person with a cordless phone, its just bad decisions and no motivation to stay alive. I really hope this "arty" director picks himself up and make a decent horror movie, if not don't call you're self a horror director, just stopþ On the other hand I would like to give the DP 5 stars for a great camera work. But people stay away, and just watch behind the scenes.

I give this movie two thumps up in the back hole.
