unexpected dive in the depth of the mind.
29 August 2018 | by BumbleBIISee all my reviews

This was an unexpected good movie with both laughter and a creping sensation down the neck, that made me check the door lock an extra time time when i got home. With excellent feal and referens to the 80,s VHS boom for all the nostalgic movie fans. Also fun to see some (in Sweden) big actors in not the biggest roles. And all actors deliver without a doubt a good preformance. A well made movie that suprice you in more ways than one.
