Martin Schmidt, Denmark, 1996

90 min.DK/FeatureYouth films

Once again, chiller director Martin Schmidt ("Final Hour") works with writer Dennis Jürgensen to make your blood run cold. This time, Schmidt has four university students take over the house of somebody recently deceased. They start enacting the moves of Backstabbed, a killer game from the U.S. Very soon, the mock killings become very, very real. Is a notorious, but never-disclosed serial killer in action?

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
