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.

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 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.

Format:DVD
Room 205 (original Danish title - "Kollegiet") is set in a Copenhagen university where a local urban legend about a supposedly haunted dorm room, seems to become more than legend when a series of deaths start occuring in the dormitory in question. Despite being described on the cover as a "fast-moving slasher movie", it's really neither. (Not that there'd be anything wrong with it if there were.) Room 205 is more of a 'slow-burn' kind of dark ghost story, that takes a little while to really take off, but succeeds in building a very creepy, disturbing atmosphere.

It starts when new girl Katrine (Neel Ronholt) moves into the dorm. Much of the movie's subtext and subplotting involves the subtle and rather savage unspoken hieracrchy that occasionally rears its ugly head in academic settings, with its social pecking orders and sometimes quiet/sometimes overt conflicts. Katrine starts off on the wrong foot by accidentally getting on the bad side of the wrong people, and their campaign to drive her out of the dorm begins. At first it seems like just little things but it starts getting ugly. One of the pranks to scare her involves a mock assault patterened on the legend of Room 205, which seems to 'wake up' the ghost, and the college is plagued by a string of seemingly accidental deaths. All of which leads into uncovering the origin of the 'haunted room' legend and who and what the angry spirit really is.

Room 205 is completely different from other college-themed horror movies like Sorority Row and Black Christmas (Unrated Widescreen Edition) (both of which I loved, by the way).
