| Maolstrom is the greatest 80,s mystery series ever made.
Hi everybody. First off all j have great news for all off you.Maolstrom will be released on DVD in Mars-April-2007.Maolstrom is one off the finest and dearest thriller and suspense-mystery series ever in Norway they showed it on TV in Easter 1985-1986.J Was seven years old in 1986.J loved every piece off the series.The White house on the island surrounded by a small forest behind it-the big collection off 80,s plastic dolls in the bedroom upstairs-the woman hiding in the house.J remember the 80,s in every moment.The decade was fantastic.Clothes-music-TV-series-movies,and so on.

Back to the series.It was a brilliant thriller.What j remember most is the theme music,and the porcelain doll in the water.That was the opening scene. J get an adrenalin kick just by thinking about the series.J remember every episode. Specially when that English woman visited the house for the first time,and found the bedroom upstairs foul off 80,plastic and porcelain dolls.Then she went out and locked the door.Behind the white curtain in that bedroom you could see somebody move it.Wery creepy.In the second episode she went back and went to the bedroom,there she grabbed a doll,and the doll cried big water tears.She became scared and ran out of the house.There she was ran down by an motorboat in the lake.She made it unharmed to the other side off the lake.The next episode she was en,t over there,but in the end off that episode in another bedroom in the white house someone had tried old fashioned clothes on ,mostly dresses .They laud on the bed.The series was beginning to reach its end.In the end of the fifth episode,she went out off the house to find a smashes doll taped to the house wall.The face was smashed.Then the end was beginning to rise,my god. She took the boat over to the house and ran inn into the living room.The record player was on playing old fashioned music from the 30,-40,s.She knew Anne Marie was hiding there.She found Annne-Marie hiding behind the door upstairs in one off the bedroom.In the sixth episode-Thar last one she was trapped there.Anne-Marie had destroyed the boat.In the evening she collected nice wood firewood.It was bonfire time.She knocked her down and locked here inside on off the bedrooms upstairs.Then,Anne-Marie took all the furniture in the living room upside-down and through gasoline on the hole thing.The she lit the hole living room Whit fire.Then she went outside to with the hole house burn down Whit her inside,trapped.On the mainland her boyfriend saw what was hap ping and took the bout out to the burning white house.He ran down from behind it and found Anne-Marie sitting there watching.He ran into the house and broke up the door and the escapes.Then Anne-Marie thought off her beloved dolls still inside the house.She ran in to rescue them,but it was to late.The flames was everywhere. She caught fire while she was holding her melting 80,s dolls in her hands.She cried out loud,holding everything in her melting ,burning hands.It was the end. After 20 years,j am looking forward to see it and have a good time. J hope all off you do the same.Love.
