arty horror
29 April 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

We aren't used to see horrors coming from the north. Some do pop up sometimes and are legendary, just think of Dead Snow (2009) for example amongst others. The problem mostly is the fact that they are spoken in their native language and not always they find there way out throughout the world. Mara I found by going to a convention were it was sold with English subs.

Jenny do has a few troubled nightmares about her past. To end that her psychiatrist told her to go back to the place were things went wrong. So she does with a few friends but rather quickly she's hunted again by her terrible dreams. Is her mother back?

The movie itself starts with some arty shots and that's already a thing were many will stop watching it. Seeing the low rating I still gave it a try and it isn't all that bad. You want to know what is going on and you can guess it rather quickly but the twist added are a bit retarded. You can easily spot what is going on. On part of the gore there isn't that much to see. There are a few stabbings but done in the well known arty way, or you see someone being stabbed and blood laying on the ground and the victim slips due the blood on the floor. What is do has is nudity from all girls involved. They all had to agree before shooting to do some nudity. The acting itself was mediocre.

Overall it wasn't that bad as the ratings are showing. It isn't gory and there's not that much of horror involved but the score and the arty way of filming made it worth watching. The title itself is explained at the end. You will love it or hate it but it surely can't compete with the Norwegian ultra gore flicks.

Gore 0,5/5 Nudity 1/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
