I was very surprised by the end result of this little known Horror/thriller from Norway.
its simple film making done with a great deal of respect which will immediately draw comparisons to the works of Roman Polanksy and Alfred Hitchcock. Its not so much what you see, its what you feel. Its the atmosphere that's strangling the air from you. Its the feeling of the walls closing in on you. Its psychology in a film that is a forgotten art. Is the main character in danger, or is he going insane? The level of uncertainty gives the audience no comfort in feeling any control. In a era of gore and nudity, this movie is a welcome breath of fresh air and shows that there are still directors out there who are willing to produce top quality Cinema to the horror movie goers.
Definitely a movie that needs to be more widely recognized.
