*Story and characters* The character in this particular movie is very silent. Read the plot, then it gets clear why. This Norwegian movie surprised me big time! The main actor plays his part very well. As well as the supporting roles are well worked out with exception of one. I do blame the actor for that (who plays Roy) he is a very obvious misfit actor to play his role.
Offcourse remind you, is subjective but still worth mentioning. The movie storyline is not to obvious until halfway the movie then you get the "clue" very easy. I like that, most really B-flick from the 1st min to the end is to predictable. This one is not, and if the clue is out the movie progresses as such. Meaning that the do not try to enhance the mystic around it no more.
So i would say the characters (mainly the main character) and the storyline are pretty good! *Hack and slash! or....* Thats what i love about this movie! It is not a obvious hack and slash movie. In the entire movie FEW ppl get killed and still managed to keep me at my seat. It is a real suspense horror/thriller movie, and thank god not a Jason Voorhees kind of ripoff! Excellent, and very enjoyable to watch. The langue Norwegian do not worry there is very low on dialog to begin with. But even then it is not a pest true out the movie.
*Overall* Great suspense thriller/horror. The did a excellent job and this movie is well worth a watch! It has the feel of seven good camera-work nothing cheesy i could detect about this movie. This is one of those, yeah indeed with a low budget you can make a kick-ass movie.
