The mother of Martin and Rebecca has a terrible secret. A former dead girlfriend, and she’s hiding in the dark.’

One of the coolest little short movie shockers has made it to the big screen as a feature film. Bummer! When Hollywood adapt this Swedish little horror short, and fills it up with nonsence, it’s hard not to be disappointed. It’s not totally bad, remember that this is a b-movie page, but it’s not good. The jumpscares is coming every too often, underlined with big scary music/noise. The monster is ok, the plot is daft and the main kid is not really an actor with a career in front of him. Fun to see the directors wife (from his cool short movie horrors) in a small part at the start. While his short film “Lights Out” is a classic, this one ain’t.
