This movie was ok and pretty creepy at times, this is definetely not a childrens movie. This is a Danish movie about a 6th grade class who gets a new substitute teacher as their old teacher has got sick. She shows some weird and evil sides alread from the beginning and the children are afraid. When she wants to take the class to Paris the children begin to panic because they don't want to be taken away by her. The parents of course don't believe the children when they try to reveal her.

Creepy and unnerving, enough to make you want to try home school

Teenie horror-ish movie. Finer than all the Twilights stuff.

Tanskalainen pienimuotoinen scifi-jännäri--komedia-mikälie sijaisopettajasta (avaruusolio) ja normioppilaista. Paprika Steen (olio) ja Ulrich Thomsen (isä) näyttelevät hyvin ja lapsinäyttelijöistä osa onnistuu olemaan pahemmin häiritsemättä. Oudolla tapaa elokuvassa paljon tuttua mutta silti jotakin uutta sopivan hauskaan kuoreen pakattuna - taattua tanskalaista. Suosittelen, mutten kaikille.

Det her må være den dårligste film, jeg har set længe; tynd historie, floskelfyldt, hverken sjov eller uhyggelig bare la la la. Hvordan man kan få så mange kendte og semi-kendte skuespillere med på sådan et projekt, må jeg undre mig over. Godt skuespil af børnene dog; stjernen er til dem.

Ikke mindre end et Dansk ungdomsfilms mesterværk der tager sit publikum seriøst. Fantastiske billeder, effekter og gysende uhyggelig musik. Ole Bornedals bedste film i lang tid.

Super underholdende. Alene Paprika Steen gør den værd at se.

Similar to a Roald Dahl story but creepier. Amusing and dark though typically for a younger crowd.

6th Grade gets a new substitute teacher. She wants to train the class for an international competition in Paris. But something isn't right. How is she able read kids' minds? Why is she so mean?

An exceptional horror/sci-fi film. Excellent cast, creepy teacher, and creepy atmospheric Danish locations all make-up this frightening film.
