Not at all what y'all could expect
12 September 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Another horror/suspense Norwegian movie. Pretty much the opening sequence shows you events that make you think you have this movie all figured out, and believe me, you will be wrong. Skjult starts slowly and patiently evolving onto a dark, minimalist, very climatic film, which takes you in a descending ride to the characters' pasts and nightmares. And it all gets darker and wronger with every minute, and it's all bad, the story, the main character, his mother, his past and his present. Thumbs up to a very nice entertaining surprise. Finally when it has to resolve, (where many horror movies tend to slip), it resolves being consequent and sustaining the same atmosphere that has been developed throughout the entire film to wrap up a strong offer from northern Europe.
