This 1999 supernatural thriller from Denmark assiduously copies Hollywood models: a junior-level virologist investigates an Ebola-like disease (Outbreak), uncovering an evil force that leaps from one human body to another (The Hidden). Director Anders Ronnow-Klarlund (a protege of Lars von Trier) adds an homage to Dracula and blatant rip-offs of The X-Files but has neither the budget nor the conviction to put across all the spooky sequences and occult mumbo jumbo. The film comes alive only when focusing on the ambitious virologist, who pays the price for his single-minded pursuit of scientific glory. With Udo Kier.
