There are only two countries that can make good horror movies.
29 February 2004 | by sippanSee all my reviews

The first one is Japan. And they know it. The second is Sweden, but for some reason horror movies are extremely rarely produced in this country. There are only a handful. But almost all of them are great, and this one is no exception. It's only the first movie I've seen that manages to be very amusing, at no expense when it comes to the fear factor. A Swedish viewer would look upon this movie with much doubt, because it is a movie starring Johannes Brost and Kjell Bergqvist, yet calls itself horror. That's sounds like a combination that doesn't work. But strangely enough it does! The movie is awesome.
