Storyline

Jannicke, Morten Tobias, Eirik, Mikal and Ingunn are on a snowboarding vacation in Jotunheimen. They are forced to take shelter in an abandoned hotel when Morten Tobias breaks his leg and their car is too far away for them to reach within nightfall. They quickly discover that the hotel was closed in the seventies due to the disappearance of the managers' son. Unknown to them, someone is still living in the hotel, and getting home, or even surviving the stay, isn't as easy as they believe. Written by Eirikizer

Trivia

The hotel room in which Ingunn is killed and later the others hide in is room number 2 3 7. This is most likely paying homage to The Shining in which the notorious room number was also 237. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Jannicke and Morten lock themselves in the room with the shotgun, Morten is shown throwing a wrench at the door. The door handle is in a strait across position as it is in the next scene when he is shining the flashlight at the door. The camera pans away to Jannicke and Morten and then back to the door. The door handle is now pointed downward. See more »

No worries, you won't be facing sleepless nights
27 October 2006 | by thoeringSee all my reviews

(... though you might jump in your chair a couple of times). Set in the snowy landscape of Jotunheimen, Norway, a group of young adventure-seeking boys and girls ends up trapped in a mysteriously abandoned mountain hotel. They try to enjoy their stay in spite of the circumstances, but after a while they realize that something horrible haunts this else-how so charming (?) old building.

As with most horror movies, don't expect anything new, it's just the same old spooky murders in another setting. The setting isn't that badly created though, and with some improved dialog and acting skills among the actors, and some elements of unexpectedness, this could have become a classic like good old' "De dødes tjern". Unfortunelately, this is not the case. An OK thriller/horror-movie, you will probably be able to enjoy it, but there's nothing extraordinary about it.
