Shocktober Goes Nordic!
On our seventeenth day of “Shocktober”, time to head overseas for some incredibly imaginative 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.
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 on the fourth ay of Shocktober, I want to celebrate the ingenuity and creative drive that was behind “Thale”..a real labor of love, and worth supporting for that reason…and for a bonus, here is another great Shocktober treat for you:
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 – and it’s the season to get wild! Check out the trailer:
These films are now available on DVD and blu-ray, so you can check out these two imaginative Nordic horror films in the privacy of your own home – celebrate Shocktober with a tail!
