Young brothers Tom and Benjamin travel to Sweden to spend their vacation with their estranged father, who they have barely seen since their parents divorced. Tom, the younger of the two, has a premonition that something bad will happen. Their strange and solitary father, who is unable to sleep, insists that Tom, like him, has a gift for feeling things which aren't quite normal. Tom's frightening visions set the stage for the bizarre and terrifying events to follow, when the three head to a house in a vast remote forest.
Not all things get resolved easily. Some movies have natural ways of telling their story, others really challenge the viewer. This one is more in the category of the latter. It has really good potential overall and the acting is also very good. The relationships are there and while not everything may seem "normal", the movie itself could be described that way too.
Having said that, all the mysteries surrounding the past get unraveled as time passes. So we do have some jumps in the time line, but it works smoothly with the rest of the story and the build up also works in favor of the suspense it creates. Not perfect, but very good in the mood department and in the overall sense and suspense.
