Product Description

When popular Stockholm priest Henrik learns of his father's death from a drowning accident, he travels through the dark, endless forests to reach the desolate village in order to investigate the mysterious death. However, his arrival at the village begins to set dark forces into motion, opening a door to the other side where ghosts from the past begin to cross over into the real world. And the ghosts seem to have one single purpose... Vengeance. Suspenseful, thrilling and darkly creepy, PSALM 21 is terrifying journey from the very gates of hell.

For quite some time now, Hollywood has seemed quite content to plunder ideas from other countries and remake many of their superior horror movies. 2009's Psalm 21 from Sweden is undoubtedly ripe for the picking.

The passage from The Bible to which the title of the movie refers is very much dealing with a God of the Old Testament. Plenty of fire and wrath and destruction of evil-doers. Fertile ground for those looking for a foundation for their horror movie!

Firstly, allow me to comment on the special effects. As far as I'm concerned, they're top notch. CGI is not overused and the effects are there to enhance the story rather than being the centrepiece of the movie.
Jonas Malmsjo is the focal point of the movie as priest Henrik Horneus and carries this burden well while being ably supported by the rest of the small cast. There are some fairly predictable plot devices in this movie (priest with issues, mysterious family living in the woods, broken down car...) but keep in mind, it is a horror movie and some things require explanation before the film can progress any further!

I generally find the inclusion of religion in a horror movie is a little cliched and has been done to death within the genre. Not so with Psalm 21. This Swedish horror takes a slightly different direction, with the penultimate scenes being particularly powerful. The ending could be considered controversial by those with more conservative views but I would suggest that it is entirely in keeping with the tone of the movie and works very well, and suprisingly for a horror movie, delivers a strong moral message.

Some may be put off by the fact that this is a Swedish movie with English subtitles.

to be honest i feel this is a strong 4 star film rather than a 5 but i feel i need to give it a 5 to balance out the existing reviews. as usual, a great horror film has had it's average score brought down because there are people here who feel that a film that isn't in English is an automatic write-off. what a shame, this is an awesome, thought provoking and well made film and it should be seen by anyone who is a fan of supernatural horror. i get that some people can't deal with sub-titles and i'm not judging them but i wish they wouldn't put others off good pieces of film like this just because it isn't for them.

the packaging is perhaps a touch misleading. this is a slow burning, creepy, dark film with a murder mystery element to it. it is a great film and should be seen by any horror fan who isn't afraid of subtitles

This film isn't quite what I expected from the blurb, but I don't regret buying it (via an Amazon partner, I should add). It is in Swedish with English subtitles, so if you don't like subtitles be aware there is no alternative on the disc. The plot does concern a young priest who goes to his late father's remote parish to try and find out what happened to the old man, and who encounters not only frightening apparitions, but also some very odd and disturbing people. During the course of his stay he learns a great deal more than he bargained for. If you are expecting epic battles with demons, you will be disappointed. But if you like a good chiller with elements of both supernatural and psychological horror, this is a pretty good one. It touches on some topics you may find unacceptable, like child sexual abuse, but I thought it was a well-written, well-acted and intriguing story which made some very serious points. And the fx are pretty good, too.

In my opinion it is entirely mis-classified as a 'Horror' film - it isn't and isn't meant to be - though it has some genuinely creepy moments.
I have watched this film 2 or 3 times since I first saw it several years back and still find nothing to fault it.
The story is actually quite an intelligent and rewarding one about a man confronting his demons - but many of the reviews I've seen completely miss the point of the film, not helped perhaps by the misleading reviews on the back of the dvd.
Another thing - if you can't read sub-titles why even bother to write a review !!
The final scene in the church is brilliant- though I can see some narrow-minded hypocrites of the type portrayed might feel otherwise !

I bought this as I am a big fan of Swedish television series and thought I would try a film. This is a most unusual and creepy story and reminded me a wee bit of "Dont Look Now" as in sections of the story that related to weird dreams and a psychic.
I would rate this more as a ghost story,I would advise anyone to watch it with the lights on as it really is quite eerie. The chap who plays the priest investigating his father's mysterious death is an excellent actor. I very much enjoyed this film and would recommend it.

Another terrible film, the acting was wooden and infantile! the story line was ridiculous and boring!

Again nothing to do with the supplier, he delivered on time.
