Evil

Saturday 23rd February 9:15 PM - Theatre By The Lake
Evil
Director:Mikael Håfström
Cert:15 Year: 2003 Length:113mins
Country:Sweden
Evil depicts life in a single-sex boarding school and what one person has to endure. Having been expelled from one day school for fighting, Erik ends up in a boarding school. Out of the frying pan and into the fire? An assured piece of film making - as the director attended such a boarding school himself - and a cast who play their parts brilliantly. As the tension increases you will be drawn into the story and forced to revise your opinion of the central character as he undergoes a period of intense change. Very powerful with knockout performances.

Thanks to Metrodome.

Critics

“A film that left me with a knot in my stomach, feeling sick and exhilarated by turns. Director Hafstrom is masterly at turning up the tension notch by notch.”
