This film is not like other Swedish movies in the genre. It's a dark, psychological thriller with slices of horror.
When I first saw the trailer for Svart Lucia I thought it was a teenage slasher movie but it sure isn't! The characters that is supposed to be high school students feels more like adults. They are affected by poor home environments and the alienation that every person that have lived in a bigger city have felt.
This, together with the dark Swedish winter season builds up tension and chills. Not through knives and blood but by good acting by non-established actors and nice, cold environments.
