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.

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.

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

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.
