Goofs

When Minoo is in the school library, talking to Max, there are letters on the wall behind them, which are supposed to read "Bokklubb" (Swedish for "Book club"). However, there is only one k, so it's misspelled as "Boklubb" (which in English would be equivalent to either "Book lub" or "Boo club"). See more »

Quotes

An awesome book CAN become an awesome movie.
3 June 2015 | by someday-69084See all my reviews

I am always sceptical when it comes to the movie version of my favorite books. They leave so many things out and you always feel like the parts missing are so vital to the story, it's a shame they've been left on the cutting room floor. This time they really put the movie business to shame! The casting, the soundtrack, the acting, the special effects...it was all on point. The actors really fit the images I had made up in my head whilst reading the book and the music gave it all an eerie feeling along with some creepy scenic shots of the ghost town of Engelsfors. Go watch it and be ashamed of the fact that you ever doubted people in the film industry will never make a good interpretation of your favorite literature.
