Pure Horror
7 February 2003 | by martinfriskSee all my reviews

This Swedish movie is the scariest that ever been watched by my eyes. It is not a patriot thing from me as a Swede, no i am totally honest in my opinion. The Americans tried with "Amityville horror" and "The haunting" but they fall so flat in comparison. Here we have scary camerawork, creepy locations and some good acting from the people involved. Fascinating how soundeffects can be so scary and it has never worked as good as in this movie. Find this movie and you will be aware of a pure horror experience.
