An excellent twist to an exorcist movie
19 April 2016 | by SpectralianSee all my reviews

"Huset" as it's known in Norwegian is an excellent twist to an exorcist movie. It takes on the concept of limbo in a very nice matter. The feeling and dialog throughout the movie leaves you with a numb and chilling feeling. It had me thinking "Wow, Scandinavian movies doesn't suck anymore for once", and that just hit the jackpot.

My friends didn't quite understand the movie. But I like to think that I certainly did. They said that it was unfulfilling, but it was indeed very fulfilling. Because, through the movie you were able to spot changes that were based on both the characters and surroundings. Things like the environment would have objects changing/rotating and the characters would change too. So if you're watching this movie, try to pay close attention to the details of it.
