Bizarre low budget
14 November 2005 | by dynamit06See all my reviews

Well I must say that this is one of the most bizarre Swedish movies ever made. The budget is very low but it's still a very interesting and pretty well-made movie.

Johanna is returning to her hometown, only to find out that things have changed in a bizarre manner. People are behaving strangely, people are disappearing and so on. Everything that happens seems to be connected to the old power-plant by the river. The movie is not really a horror movie but more of a surrealist art-movie with horror-elements. It has a lot in common with the work of people like David Lynch. On the downside it's a bit long with it's 136 minutes and the low budget is sometimes a bit too apparent in picture and sound-quality. The direction, cinematography and editing is however great. It would be really interesting to see what these guys could do if they had a more normal budget.

Not to be missed if you're into low budget experimental cult-movies!
