Nightwatch is a captivating thriller that ratchets up the tension from its opening moments, Ole Bornedal knows how to get the maximum thrills from his simple set-up.
Audience Reviews for Nattevagten (Nightwatch)
the premise and setting are ideal for suspense but the tone, although its dark humor is affable, is inconsistent, and leads to an accommodating finale.
Influential Danish thriller. A student gets a night job in the local morgue and if this isn't a creepy enough job, someone is murdering prostitues. The students friend is a bit of a nutcase who likes to push things to far which puts him in the frame straight away but with some twists and turns along the way, Nightwatch keeps you glued to the screen throughout with some great tension and black comedy also thrown in. A possible influence on the likes of Seven, this is a decent thriller despite looking a bit dated. I wasn't keen on theending either! Still, worth checking out.
"Nightwatch" is a decent Danish horror/suspense movie. The atmosphere of the morgue is interesting, and there are some suspenseful moments but despite the interesting story the narrative was poor and there aren't enough suspects to go around turning the movie pretty predictable.
