Trivia

The subplot about the pedophile ring was invented for the film and not present in the original short story. Perhaps it could be seen as a nod to John Ajvide Lindqvist's earlier novel "Let the Right One In", which included a subplot about pedophiles which was omitted from the film adaptation. See more »

Really weird, original, dark.. and really good!
4 November 2018 | by gwest-58160See all my reviews

I recommend this to anyone that loves weird films, because this is certainly one of them!

Gripping throughout, dark, good story and performances, unpredictable, very original.

A high 7/10!
