Storyline

Explore your worst possible fears in this shocking horror thriller inspired by terrifying true events! Driving back to Norway, Lina and Martin reach a roadblock where a policeman tells them to take a detour deep into the Swedish forest. But soon one creepy incident after another leaves them stranded in the dark woods and everything seems much too bizarre to be accidental. What Lina and Martin don't know is that they are under constant video surveillance and have been cast in the leading roles of a live Internet snuff movie with a definitive end.

Waiting is (more than) half the fun
27 September 2010 | by soloraidSee all my reviews

I was watching this movie last night with my wife, and we were excited to see another Norwegian horror movie.

During the last years, we've had the pleasure of seeing good Norwegian horror movies like "Fritt Vilt I & II" and "Villmark", which were a thrill to see.

I really like to see horror movies with ingredients that put the setting in an "everyday life" situation, and things that can actually happen. This movie is based on a true story, and the story is good. Some of the effects are good and a little bit scary, but most of all we spent the time watching this movie waiting to be scared.

When things finally started to happen, they happened so fast and so much within short time, that it wasn't scary at all.

I liked the movie after all, had a good time watching it, and my wife didn't disagree. So, I would recommend watching it, but don't bring too many pillows. You don't need to hide...
