Oh well...
27 January 2008 | by vegarpSee all my reviews

The story is supposed to take place in the summer of 1974, and this is where the problems start. You get absolutely no feeling of being in the 70s, the looks of the characters, their language, clothes and attitude is nothing that resemble the youngsters of the mid 70s in Norway in any way. You get a immediate feeling of being in year 2008, but the director obviously want it to be otherwise.

With such a poor beginning you lose the interest for the rest of the plot, but you continue watching for things that might save this from turning into a total catastrophe. Unfortunately the crap continues.

It goes on into a wrap of blood, gore and chaos beyond any recognition. The bad guys are super-humans in the beginning, but once the blonde starts to repel they act like a bunch of blind idiots with no structure or strategy whatsoever.

On the bright side, the effects and make-up in the movie are absolutely stunning, great actually. Very convincing, and the violence isolated from the rest are good.

But in sum, this is another failure in the line of the new Norwegian gore and slasher movies, like Villmark and Fritt Vilt. This is the definitive worst production so far, but lets take into account that this is the directors debut.
