Storyline

14-year-old Lulu moves to a small provincial town with her mother and younger brother. One night, her brother is struck by a beam of white light - actually the spirit of Herman Hartmann from the 19th-century. To her despair, Lulu realizes that Herman has possessed her brother, and the two of them are whirled into a fevered adventure. Joined by Oliver, a rich kid, and Richard, a disillusioned clairvoyant and inventor, they take on the dark, supernatural forces gathering over the town - evil from deep in the land of the dead, determined to take over the world and see them die.

Brilliant movie by Arcel and the Special effects team!
14 February 2007 | by Was_HereSee all my reviews

One of the best danish directors right now is Nikolaj Arcel! T his guy is surely capable of directing one of those big blockbusters. His care for details is huge, and you can feel throughout the movie that he likes what he is doing.

If you like Harry Potter or Narnia, you will like this one too! The plot is one of those good old adventures about the battle between the good and the evil, souls, ghosts, dark creatures and evil sorcerer.

The special effects in this movie is insanely well done, and is just as good or perhaps better than the effects of the rescent Potter-movies.

The acting is great, considering we are dealing with teenagers and small children. The older actors are some of the best danish actors right now, Anders W. Berthelsen is always a pleasure to watch, and Lars Mikkelsen is frightening as the Necromancer. If Ralph Fiennes didn't play Voldemort, Lars would!
