not for every horror buff
8 March 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a perfect example of a flick that will have his haters. It is a horror but it's filmed in an arty way. You really have to follow closely to catch it all. This isn't a no-brainer although after a while I knew who the killer was. But there's more going on, slowly you get to know what happened earlier.

You really will get into the mind of Kai Koss (Kristoffer Joner) but as I said earlier it's done in an arty way and some will hate that because by doing so the director, Pål Øie, could add jump scene's with a ghost although it isn't a ghost story. Towards the end there are a few killings but it's shot really low on blood. The effects used was rather okay.

A slow builder, surely a horror but for those who can dig arty flicks

Gore 1/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 3/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
