A group of friends reunite after a long time to plan a vacation. They finally decide to go on a hiking trip in Sweden. When one of them is injured, they have no choice but to cut through the forest in order to arrive at the lodge a couple of hours sooner. During a raging rainstorm, they spent the night in a spooky, abandoned house. What awaits them are things they never expect out of this supposedly bonding trip.Written by
Beside the Othala/Odal rune, the Algiz (also called Elhaz) rune can be seen on the trees and as the shape of a sacrificial pole. Algiz is the name conventionally given to the "z-rune" of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet, from the Common Germanic word for "elk" and it is thought to represent the divine might of the universe.

When the group enters the cabin, the door opens inward. A moment later when Luke opens the door to peer into the woods, the door opens outward. See more »
Why don't we go to... boom! Amsterdam?
No, it's too touristy now, isn't it?
All right, TripAdvisor.
I'm not getting off my head again.

Safest place in the world are actually the Swedish woods
As a film, I really enjoyed it. Kinda creepy, and it was well executed from cast to photo to everything.
Only thing i oppose, as a Swede, is the image of the Swedish woods as something scary. It really isn't, I'm sorry to say. I have spent a good many nights there in tents and cabins, and I am pretty well educated about the folklore. This one turns into something that is reall none-Scandinavian in terms of that. None of the "rituals" or creatures have nothing to do with actual lore. Sure, they speak about norse figures like the children of Loki, but that is just silly.
As a fright-flick, though, it is good.
And for you to know: We do have scary creatures in the woods. But we who live here know them, and they look like nothing as projected here. Come and see.
