2.0 out of 5 stars A ghost story minus the scares November 7, 2008
Format:DVD
Along with The Substitute, Room 205 is a Danish import carrying the Ghost House Underground banner. Unlike The Substitute though, Room 205 is a tedious bore that fails to deliver, and ends up being a ghost story minus the scares. The gorgeous Neel Rønholt (who is a dead ringer for erotic scream queen Erin Brown, AKA Misty Mundae) stars as a newly moved in college student that soon learns the last inhabitant of her dorm room met a tragic and grisly demise. Her spirit is restless, and it isn't long before her mates start getting picked off one by one. It's nothing we haven't seen or heard before, but Room 205 at least starts out promising before getting caught up in mellowdrama. Adding insult to injury is the fact that Room 205 is just plain boring for almost 2/3's of its running time. Though it does get better during the last third of the film, Room 205 still ends up being a mostly boring disappointment. Still, you could always do much worse horror wise, and Room 205 is worth a look for ghost story fans, just don't expect too much out of it.

I have been looking forward to seeing "Room 205" because when I rented "The Last House in the Woods" the enveloped did not describe that film, but this film, and since that film was so bad, I figured this film had to be better. The only thing these two Ghost House Underground films have in common is that they are both dubbed, in which case "Room 205" really ends up being paired with "The Substitute" because then are both from Denmark. The original title in Danish is "Kollegiet" translates as "The College," which apparently makes Danish film fans think horror film, a premise reinforced by "The Substitute," which also taking place in a school, although that is really more of a science fiction film (apparently schools are really scary places in Denmark).

Our heroine is Katrine (Neel Rønholt) has recently suffered the death of her mentally ill mother, and has moved into a dorm at a university in Copenhagen. Katrine is assigned Room 205, where it turns out that something not very nice happened there once, which would explain the apparition that she starts seeing in the mirror. However, Katrine's immediate problem is that she has gotten on the bad side of Sanne (Julie R. Olgaard), after sleeping with her boyfriend. The precipitating event is a mean spirited prank that goes awry, and then things start to happen in this 2007 movie, which is good because the first half develops at a lathargic pace and the dominant tones of brown and yellow start to ware thin on the eyes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow paced, but effective October 9, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie is worth a rental, at best. It is dubbed in English.

The minus part is the slow moving plot. It's in no hurry to get anywhere fast, and it will reveal it's secrets when it wants to. That took the two stars away for it in my opinion.

The plus side is the eerie photography and the atmosphere of dread. A lot of the scenes appear blurry and washed out, but it adds to the surreal eerie atmosphere. And when the ghost does appear, there are odd sounds with her that remind one of "The Grudge".

One of the leads actually steals the movie with her acting and just how convincingly mean she made her character.

it is worht a watch, it is a foreign dubbed film, and not of the usual pacing and photography of the American movies.

I really enjoy sampling the horror cinema wares of different regions and countries. More often than not, they are better than the same old paint-by-numbers films coming out of Hollywood; more than that, though, foreign horror films almost always put me in an environment I'm not fully familiar with and inject a creative element into the whole experience that branches down dark corridors I've yet to traverse. Kollegiet (Room 205) marks my first foray into Danish horror, and I must say I'm not quite sure how to approach this particular film. I want to criticize and praise it at the same time. Part of me says it wasn't all that impressive of a film, but another part of me has to acknowledge the fact that it definitely managed to get under my skin before all was said and done.

Room 205 isn't going to grab you by the lapels and shake you. In fact, it's difficult to really get into the story or characters early on. The fact that the whole atmosphere is dark, dreary, and rainy all of the time doesn't help, but the real burden the film has to overcome is the fact that it develops very slowly over the course of the first half hour. It's even difficult to get much of a read on the main character, Katrine (Neel Rønholt), who initially comes across as a shy and unassuming young lady just entering university; there's an air of mystery about her, however, as we see some definite conflict between her and her father and soon learn that her mother killed herself some time earlier. Her new dorm mates are rather standoffish, especially Sanne (Julie Ølgaard), and we know they basically ran the last dorm mate out of the house; you're either in or out, and Rolf (Mikkel Arendt) was out.
