Reaction from the finnish audience at the museum of Oulu:

 "Totaalinen pimeys on hämmentävää, eikä uskalla liikua."

"Jotenkin tuli mieleeni Uhrilampaat elokuvan kellarikohtaus, jossa päähenkilö poliisi klukee pimeässä ja uhka on hyvin läsnä."

"Vallankäyttö ja uhkaava tunnelma aiheuttivat pelkoa, joka rajoitti liikkumista"

"Kokemus maailman pahuudesta"

"Jotenkin eläimellinen tunne ympärillä pyörivästä hahmosta. Vaikutus teoksesta ihan fyysinen laittoi   veren kiertämään kehossa"
