Psycho drama captivates

Rating: 7/10

Who knows what is going on in the mind of a serial killer. Is is
synapses failing to fire correctly, or the lack of some chemical? Can
psychotropics solve the problem? Danish filmmaker Kim Sønderholm makes
a valiant attempt to show a man who struggles with his impulses, and,
ultimately, loses.

A hint of child abuse is given in a zombie encounter with his father,
who was killed, along with his mother, in a fire. Craig's (played by
the director) inadvertently put his sister in a coma in the fire. He is
plagued by guilt over his sister's condition and seeks psychotherapy.
Sønderholm must have a bit of Scientology in him as his psychotherapist
is a real loser.

Lithium seems to help Craig, but it seems strange that he takes it like
breath mints out of a tin whenever a panic attack is revealed. Maybe
that is the way medicine is dispensed in Denmark. But the slights to
his manhood continue from all directions and, at some point, the
medicine loses it's effectiveness and he gives in to his murderous
impulses.

There is little blood and gore, so don't expect Saw. It is more about
the drama going on in Craig's head. His method is usually
strangulation. His targets are always women, although he gets most of
his insults from men. He ends up chasing a girl though the woods and
raping her after he shoots her. This is where I have a problem with the
film. Not the supposed necrophilia, but the fact that it doesn't end
with his shooting, as it should. It goes on for two more scenes that
just don't make sense to me.

Those that like their horror more psychological than bloody will find
this to be an interesting film. The camera work of Jan T. Jensen and
Søren Ulfkjær was excellent, and the soundtrack will please all those
who like their music hard and loud. Both really fit well with the
script.

A little humor and a lot of flesh makes for icing on the cake.
