Im an Australian traveling around Europe at the moment and I went with some friends to go an see this movie as a sneak preview. I speak a little bit of German but the movie was very well produced and even though there was little dialog (Therefore I could understand most of it) it still came out as a great movie! I highly recommend going to see it, because I was trying to figure out the movie the whole time and then i didn't see the end coming. A really good movie and I definitely recommend going to see it when it comes out, I'm even going to go and see it a second time when its released. This movie though will make most people, apart from the hardened and soulless people out there, jump. There were many points in which the whole cinema jumped and even one young woman had to leave because she was too frightened. Definitely go and watch this movie, highly recommendable. Kudos to the producers! The amount of swearing involved is minimal, and there's nothing too gory, but i wouldn't recommend it for people under 12 unless accompanied by someone who can 'protect' them.
And guys, take your girlfriends, they'll want you to hold them tight during this one!
