A young man is fired from his job at the sea port and begins to stalk his boss and his beautiful wife. After a blood chilling turn of events, he attempts to escape his past by moving into the lavish mansion previously owned by his boss. The embittered young man tries to assume a new identity and lead a luxurious life, but nothing will prepare him for an unsettling visit by a vaguely familiar guest. After that unnerving encounter, the house will no longer be a safe haven, becoming, instead, a twisted and dangerous trap haunted by menacing spirits.
Well I was in for a quite a surprise. I saw this film at the Stockfish European film festival in Reykjavik. I had previously watched the trailer and I liked what i saw but like with so many films from the genre I was pretty confident it would fail to live up to it's standards. I was bit surprised by the low rating here (given, only 105 votes when this is written). Well the films narrative plot is not the most regular I have seen but the mood is fantastic. Rather than being dialogue driven it's action driven with a great cinematography combined with a suspenseful score, blurry dream sequences and some Violence with a capital V. I wasn't totally sure what actually took place in the movie but I like it that way and I'm pretty sure there is a deeper meaning behind all of this. This movie probably isn't for everyone and I must say the movie leaves behind more questions than answers. For me it was the feel of the movie. A blend of Trier, Kubrick, Lynch Laugier, not a bad cocktail. Well my first review, hope it helps.
