After the latest novel of writer Robin Richards (Andréa Winter) flopped, she lost all self-confidence and is convinced she'll never be able to write again - so her publisher (Martina Novak) sends her to Sweden, to find her inner balance and inspiration on a farm in the middle of nowhere. But really, the Swedish countryside does nothing to find her peace of mind - or rather it's the locals that freak her out a bit, including her driver Hans (Christer Cavallius), who's an obsessive fan of hers, his wife Elsa (Ellinor Berglund), who's dangerously jealous, a hunter (Jakob Brunnström Hedström) who loves his gun a bit too much, and then there's of course the owner (Rolf Brunnström) of the farm Robin stays at who seems to harbour a secret of his own. At first, Robin blames everything on her strained nerves, and the fact that she's not at all cut out for country life, and figures once her boyfriend (Patrick von Barkenberg) arrives everything will turn out fine. Only, the boyfriend doesn't arrive - or rather, he arrives and gets killed, unbeknowest to Robin. From here on though, things can go only one way - and that's downhill ...

 

Now this one certainly is one of the more unusual entries into the horror genre, basically a psycho thriller with traces of slasher, character study and even absurd comedy, all rolled into one, into a story that obviously enjoys to twist and turn and play with audience expectations. And the directorial effort really plays into the hands of the script here, betting on understatement most of the time to let things develop to full effect rather naturally. And of course a solid cast helps as well to turn this into a rather interesting and surprising genre film that's well worth a watch.
