Director Pål Øie's 2003 Dark Woods was voted "the scariest Norwegian film ever" by one of the country's biggest tabloids. So it's with no small fanfare that Dark Woods 2 is here, and thankfully has abandoned its predecessor's reality TV framework for a much spookier setting: an abandoned hospital.

Suggested double-feature, since the films look kinda similar in story if not in style and execution: Brad Anderson's Session 9, which stars David Caruso and Peter Mullan as members of an asbestos-removal team hired to clear out a creepy, abandoned mental hospital, a job that's already unpleasant by the time things start getting all Overlook Hotel.
