Straight forward, enjoyable, couple of creepy scenes
14 June 2015 | by Finfrosk86See all my reviews

This is a straight forward, pretty simple ghost movie.

It has some real creepy, pretty scary scenes, and the haunty-stuff that happens to the family is cool, and well done. Pacing is good.

The movie is more on the quiet side, but doesn't really get boring.

Now, it is Swedish, and it is from 88, so some of the dialogue and acting is a little bit strange. But not in a way that makes it a drag to watch, though.

The first part of the movie is a little stronger than the second. And the best scary parts are in the beginning, rather than the end.

I find it very interesting that this is Swedish, a ghost horror movie, and made in 1988! If I were Swedish I would be proud of that!

Come on Norway, ghost horror movie please! Make me proud.
