"Happy End" is about a young writer who moves into an old suburban house because of his writing blockade. He wants to start a new life there. Searching for the right story for his new novel, he discovers a well secured secret in which his strange neighbors and the preceding tenant are involved. Joana, the little daughter who died in a car accident 7 years ago, seems to play an important role in this mystery. In the end, everything turns out different from what he expected.

solid low budget film
21 July 2015 | by mr-rob-cSee all my reviews

i have to say...i am positive surprised... Germany ist not known for horror film, so i don't know if horror is the right word for this. that people are laughing or total shocked from this film, don't know why...for me not really scary moments. how i write...it is low budget, and often it is crap, so i started this film and was not sure if i will look it to the end, but...i have and it was worth look it. budget ist low, the picture looks cheap and the acting was not really good, BUT the story was good ! thats what makes a film good, when you get entertained, and i was entertained. what i also liked was the guitar solo at the end. try it out, better then the most films with this rating.

greetings from cologne and like always....sorry for my English ,-)
