absolutely astounding, a thriller, makes you feel intrigued!
8 July 1999 | by RhettzkySee all my reviews

this movie was a 10 out of 10 in my opinion. this film is currently on tour on a filmfest in europe, this movie was enjoyable for many reasons, the first i can think of is the suspense, this movie would make you grip yourself to the screen and make you not want to leave, this movie made me feal like i had to know the end or else you would not be able to think about anything else until i do! with a great young actress "Sina Langfeldt" (Solveig) who delivers an great portration of a torn person in chains at deaths door, at 15 she has a bright acting career ahead of her, Isle of darkness or Morkets Oy is a must see for anybody looking for a good movie!
