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.

It's kinda like Mac vs. PC's.
26 October 2010 | by nonigdkSee all my reviews

If you expect a Hollywood blockbuster, you'll be disappointed. If you expect a fun and great story with a perfect plot, you might be disappointed. If you just want to be entertained and are tired of "Anja & Viktor" or "Tempelriddernes skat" (The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar), you will not be disappointed. For a Danish film, the visual effects are amazing. It is in a way "our" version of 'Star Wars' - if you compare where Danish film is right now, and what Nikolaj Arcelhave done, this IS our 'Star Wars'. But most of all, it's just fun. And is that not what movies like "The Goonies" ('85) have to be? It's just damn good fun. It's not perfect, but hey! Neither was or is 'Star Wars'. I would love to see more of this "Hollywood" competition coming from Danish directors, and not only in terms of visual effects. I would like to see the Danish film producers "try harder".
