This is something as unusual as a GOOD Swedish horror mini-series. I liked it from the start. The first episode gives us a slow, but sure, build-up where we get to know the characters and also keeps us guessing what really happened ten years ago. The plot then slowly unravels over the next two episodes into a gory crescendo of a finale.
I liked the fact that the actors in this series were totally unknown to me, and that they delivered superb acting, what I liked even more was the fact that what lurks in the woods is something you have never seen before.
Low budget, sure. Maybe a bit of an ambiguous ending but still, thrills and shrills and scenes that will make you squirm in your seat. Just the way I like it.
