Storyline

The young Kathrin returns to the small village where she was born to bury her mother, whom she barely knew. Piece by piece she learns the details behind the gruesome murder of an entire family on a farm near the village. It has been two years since the murder happened, but the memories are still vivid and Kathrin's visit is stirring up the past. Almost everybody seems to have had a reason to be the murderer, who has never been found. Written by xnrat

Decent Horror
17 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

Or Thriller movie if you want to call it that. It does not invent anything new, but it does use a successful formula pretty nicely. The concept of keeping things hidden and not letting you know from the get go what is going on (or rather what went on). And the movie does a good job of keeping the viewer interested enough for him/her to get through the movie.

It's a pretty dark movie tone-wise and the story might be a bit predictable, but if you stay with it, you might find the end result rewarding. I say "might", because this is not everyones cup of tea so to speak. I kinda liked it, though I think it lost quite a bit of drive in its middle section. Worth a look ...
