CORRIDOR reminds me of a time when suspense was the critical element of any good thriller, and gore took a backseat (if it were even a passenger). The psychological impact of this film truly surprised me, as I fell victim to the moodiness and masterfully increasing tension as the film progressed. Literally on the edge of my seat throughout, I loved that while I didn't like the main character, I found myself relating to his plight and growing very sympathetic towards him as the story unfolded. This is a cleverly crafted thriller, both fast-moving and suspenseful. It's the kind of film I desperately want to own on DVD or BluRay so I can force my friends to watch it, knowing they will be forever grateful that I did. I highly recommend it to any thriller fan who is not afraid of a few subtitles.
a good thriller. this is first definition. a precise science of tension. that is its basic virtue. and extraordinary art to give to viewer place of character. because it seems be slice of reality , chain of events not out of chance to live in each existence. the hidden fear - that is the demon who dominate entire movie. this is axis of gestures and words of characters. and, sure, the love - ordinary character of this kind of films - has, in this case, special flavor. it is a dark adventure. cold, smart, precise. lesson of Scandinavian thriller. so, must see it ! far from expectations, it is special on a scene in which terror is result of scary instruments. in this case is little simple. or only complicated. because it is a good opportunity to discover measure of a wise director craft.
I was very surprised by the end result of this little known
Horror/thriller from Norway.
its simple film making done with a great deal of respect which will immediately draw comparisons to the works of Roman Polanksy and Alfred Hitchcock. Its not so much what you see, its what you feel. Its the atmosphere that's strangling the air from you. Its the feeling of the walls closing in on you. Its psychology in a film that is a forgotten art. Is the main character in danger, or is he going insane? The level of uncertainty gives the audience no comfort in feeling any control. In a era of gore and nudity, this movie is a welcome breath of fresh air and shows that there are still directors out there who are willing to produce top quality Cinema to the horror movie goers.
Definitely a movie that needs to be more widely recognized.
