It is a surprisingly good film in every way.  I was totally immersed each time I watched it - but you gotta watch it with the Norwegian audio track and subtitles to get the full effect.  Not saying the tracks are any different, but the English dubbed track is terribad.  Here are some SpecLab scenecaps:












The scenes are full of hot content mostly in the 25Hz+ range, with good weight 15Hz on up, but, come the ending starting around 1:30:00 mark, the effects appropriately gain a ton of weight down low.  Those 3-4Hz hits are significant, frequent, and shocking when they happen, if you have a system that can reproduce them.


More people should pick this title up.  It's sorta like Blair Witch, done right.

I think I may have become a Bass curmudgeon. Even when I give it 5 stars I instinctively give a Rent. Sigh. Haven't watched it in a couple years, but I do remember liking the movie after a first, prematurely aborted attempt to watch it. The bass was a bonus. Switching to Buy.
