Storyline

One mistake will change many lives. SOVIA, a nurse, makes a fatal mistake in the emergency room, killing a patient. Later that night, Sovia has a surreal, near death experience in which the deceased patient appears and touches her shoulder. When Sovia recovers, she finds a bruise has developed at the exact place she was touched by the deceased. Unknowingly, she passes the bruise to others - who are then killed at the hands of the deceased. Sovia becomes the prime suspect in the murders and she begins to discover the truth. Since nobody believes her, it is up to Sovia to try to save herself and the others. Written by Nicholas Gräbert

Very unexpected...
12 July 2011 | by frederico-kleinSee all my reviews

I wanted to write a review for this movie mostly because there seems to be a gap between its rating and the reviewer rating. With an average rating of 4 (at time this was written) I expected a very bad movie.

But what can I say; if I could summarize it would be this: More than just a horror flick, this movie is a GREAT thriller.

It does give you goosebumps all the time, so you end up just not knowing what to expect. It was very well directed, the photography is great and the soundtrack was so incredibly well chosen!

But the title does have its downs, which focus mostly in the somewhat predictable story line and linear characters and lack of any depth in anything whatsoever. This does not have to be an entirely bad thing for it does give a mystical sense of being out of touch with reality. If you accept these deliberate unexpected choices to portray unexpectedness you might be able to enjoy this movie at its fullest.

A great choice if you a horror movie fan, or someone that can accept its limitations.

PS: Another downside is that its original audio is in German so for those who can't understand it, subtitles will be needed.
