I must say after having watched some of David F. Sandberg's recent works, I have become quite a fan. I am generally not too big on the horror genre, but his approach truly impresses me. It is scary to the extent that I can't look, but also can't look away. The moment she looks inside the box is pretty terrifying. When she tries to listen and keeps her eyes away from the box, it was obvious something bad is about to happen that she would not see right away. Lotta Losten does a good job here as well. No need for dialogue and no need for a super-attractive actress if the story is just captivating enough. And this one sure is. Sandberg's films are all very short and maybe this is their strength as they are also very essential at the same time. You get no messed-up story or cheap thrills, you just get great horror all the time you watch. I also believe his camera work is excellent and I hope he will make a full feature someday and it will be just as good as his short film works. I highly recommend "Coffer".
