Trivia

The film shown at the cinema is The Relic (1997), also distributed in Germany by TMG. The crowd clearly features some boys aged 12-14. In theory this would be a punishable violation of the youth protection laws since that film has an age restriction of 16. See more »

Goofs

Melissa tumbles over the balcony face-first with her head closest to the railing. In the next shot, however, she is falling face-up with her feet closest to the railing. See more »

scream in austria
20 April 2002 | by zero_jokerSee all my reviews

This is the german attempt to do a horror movie. Since the horror genre was very popular in the late ninety's (consider the scream series) they tried to copy the concept and changed the setting to a small village in the austrian alpes. First of all I think it's much too late for this. There are too much better horror movies. Everything in this movie is stereotype, a lonely village, some stupid cops etc... It's a bit boring, nothing new. It's just a film which was not necessary. The only plus is the good playing of the main actress (the nice and cute Valerie Niehaus) and that the film does not take itself too serious. Some funny scenes. And a unusual ending. I'll give 6/10. If you want some popcorn horror-cinema go out for the US Productions. They did it a lot better...
