Audience Reviews for De Dødes Tjern (Lake of the Dead)


Maybe Norwegian finest film our in the terms of horror. Great cast and spellbinding story, including occultism, psychoanalysis and telepathy. Inspired by great thinkers, and Fritz Lang. The cliche cabin in the woods, with the small pond of dead bodies at first sight, but it goes way deeper with a rock-solid script.

This wonderfully shot (and short), powerful film is a lost horror gem. The film focuses on a group of friends that travel to the woods. It all goes a bit terrifying as a brother is missing, people start sleepwalking, and the truth mixes with superstition. The film is quite dialog heavy in explaining itself, as we have a hypnotist that refuses to believe in ghosts. The scenes build up with a kind of quiet charm, and never fully reveal themselves, allowing our thoughts to intertwine with how the characters see it. The audience is really included in this film, with a lot of moments seeming as though the characters are trying to persuade us onto their side.
