very generic substance without a twist ...

Is my first thought, and the way this story is told are less than average good, its a zombie like production over the ghosts from the past. the plotspeend goes from turtlish to rabbit speed and there are large plotholes, there are too many questionable and incoherent transitions, and as a result of bad directing the actors are never given a chance to surprise or flourish.i felt that the whole line of cast seemed utterly uninspired in their acting, and if this was in a upper middleclass neighbourhood in the late 50's, the general view on life in usa were a lot brighter than this film illustrates.

so noomi rapace does not impress here and neither will the general audience, except those who will have or needs the revenge to be able to breath. i the grumpy old man have my c-pap to survive the mess of day/-and night mares, so i will survive to tell its not much, just a very small recommend

Watch "Death and the Maiden" instead

Death and the Maiden has a very similar script but is more nuanced and keeps the viewer switching back and forth as to whom to believe. This film is scripted too black &white to be interesting. Also Sigourney is 100x more intense than Noomi. Acting, directing, writing - D&M is superior in all aspects. Skip this one and watch D&M instead!

Could be better

I enjoy this kinda plot twist, tortured movie genre similar to Misery, Death & the Maiden.. etc.. But this one feels a bit lacking and could be much better if they add more intense /blowing mind scene .. The cast are already good, really loves Joel Kinnaman cause all the movies he does was great.. I give 9/10 to help with the ratings..

If you like actress Noomi Rapace...

...and period dramas set in the 50's, I recommend it. If you don't expect too much and just enjoy it for what it is...nothing special but I still enjoyed it even though I have seen better films like it. A decent 6 stars but 7 for the actress.

I'm not crazy, you're crazy

5 points for Noomi Rapace, her character wasn't believable, no sympathy, or enough to justify what she was doing. I'm gonna go watch the old one, these remakes are always horrible.
