Well-made Danish horror/thriller
31 January 2000 | by DaySleeper-2See all my reviews

Well-made Danish horror/thriller, it had been doubted (myself included) that we were capable of thrillers of this caliber in little Denmark but "Besat" ("Possessed") proved us all wrong. "Besat" is better than most US productions in the same genre, cast, plot and special effects included. Check out talented director Rønnow-Klarlund's first movie "Den Attende" ("The 18th") as well!
