Ready For Some Obscure Cult Horror?
If you are a cult film lover, you can’t help but admire when a film maker creates a unique vision – especially on a low low budget.
Here’s a very imaginative horror film that was made for almost nothing!
Check out the creepy trailer for this horror film from Norway – “Thale”:
This Norwegian horror film finds a way to be very imaginative on almost no budget. Here is the plot, courtesy of IMDB:
Norwegian folklore turns out to be real when Leo and Elvis encounter “Thale” in a basement. A regular cleaning job turns into a struggle for survival, while they’re trying to figure out what or who “Thale” is.
A 10K Movie!
Reports say that “Thale” was shot on a budget of just $10,000! And here is one reason why: Director Aleksander L. Nordaas was also the film’s writer, co-producer, cinematographer, editor, and set designer! He also built the sets and shot most of the film in his father’s basement!
The film’s reviews were mixed, but I am here to celebrate the ingenuity and creative drive that was behind it..a real labor of love, and worth supporting for that reason…now, this next guy doesn’t need any help at all with his self-confidence:
Meet “The Troll Hunter!”
This Norwegian film is also based on a fairy tale – the story of the monstrous trolls that live in Norway’s wilderness! Check out the trailer:
These films are now available on DVD and blu-ray, so you can check out this imaginative Nordic horror in the privacy of your own home!
