This Movie Gives Meaning To The Word "Terror"
12 March 2018 | by esporeSee all my reviews

This movie is an honest portrayal of a horrific event that took place on Utøya. There is no music, there are no cuts, there is just you and the film in a nightmare scenario. The haunting screams followed gunshots really shook me, especially since this actually happened.

My only gripe with this film is that some of the actors were so laughably bad that it took me out of the movie, luckily though they didn't take up too much space in the film.
