Sequel:

Spår i mörker (1997 IMDb)

Commentary

Worth it exclusively for the generation gap. Kids have turned abandoned sections of the Stockholm subway system into a never-ending LARP/LAN party (apparently the same thing) for “Final Doom” (not the actual 1996 game with that title) and real frags of innocent commuters. Idiotic.
