review by
Mike Haberfelner

World War II, Norway: Two German soldiers (Frederik von Lüttichau, Mats Reinhardt) have taken a Norwegian soldier (Sondre Krogtoft Larsen) prisoner and try to make it back to civilisation through what seems like endless masses of snow - but as night breaks, the best they can manage is a house in the middle of nowhere, a house where it seems the occupants have just fled as there's still warm food on the table. But the house soon starts to freak the two soldiers out, as they seem to hear noises from other rooms where there aren't supposed to be any, find their stuff disappearing and turnint up where it's not supposed to be, and eventually they start seeing things - and it's unclear if these are ghostly apparitions or just manifestations of their own guilt. And then there's a guest book in the house which eerily seems to recount their story and predict what might happen - and it's not good for sure ...

 

Broken down to its core, The House is a great exercise in atmospheric filmmaking: Essentially, the film's story isn't wholly original, and making a couple of Nazi soldiers the protagonists and feeding their backstory into the main narrative is a novelty at best. But thanks to a great location, great camerawork and a well-paced narrative approach (coupled with solid performances of course), this is a movie that still has its audience at the edge of their seats and glued to the screen, and it's also something sure to remain with one for a few days after watching, and chillingly so.
