Great horror movie - Dennis Jurgensen is a genius!
Again Jurgensen shows his genius. The critics will probably not like this movie but it is because they have no sense of humour and don't understand the horror genre. In fact, this is a brilliant horror movie far, far better than recent Hollywood "horror" and on the level of recent Japanese and South-East Asian horror (such as The Eye, The Ring, Dark Water, etc.) Jurgensen is a genius and in this movie he is at the height of his powers. Him and Martin Schmidt clearly knows their stuff. They know the genre in and out and demonstrate how to make a horror movie with integrity and excitement. The dialogue is amazing, for example the one between David and Sarah: "Hvad laver du i din fritid?" "Jeg rider", etc. This is just so funny and brilliant. I don't know what people's problem is when the rate movies like this so low. It must simply be ignorance towards the fundamentals of the horror genre. Let me tell you folks: Horror does not get any better than this! Take it or leave it!
