One more thing, can any Swede explain the difference between Swedish "Lapland" and "Norrland"? Are the two words used as synonyms in a daily use? I know there's some films placed in Norrland, like the 1971 film Skräcken Har 1000 Ögon and the 2006 horror film Frostbite... But I don't remember anything Laplandish or Sami in these two films.dodo wrote: I'm a bit interested in Lapland and Sami culture at the moment.
Is there Swedish films that are placed in Lapland or have Sami peope in them. Like the classic Swedish sci fi Rymdinvasion i Lappland?
I watched it a couple of weeks back and wasn't that impressed i'm afraid. It's indeed a very bleak and weird film but also prententious (in the bad way) and muddled. The film feels like an half-digested idea and it's hard to know what to make of it. Still, I can easily imagine some people liking it much more than I did and it has one truly nightmarish standout scene (if you've seen you know which one i'm talking about). The DVD is indeed OOP. The transfer isn't great but probably the best we'll ever see and on the plus-side it has loads of extras and a whole extra DVD full of Alexandersson/De Geer shorts, all subtitled.dodo wrote:Can anyone tell me more about the Res aldrig på enkel biljett mentioned in the "bleakness and despair" topic. The film sounds very interesting... Also is the Swedish DVD oop?

It's an unofficial remake of THE EVIL DEAD and in my book (of the dead) it's way better than the official remake of the film!Member-X wrote:The search yielded no results, so I have to mention: Wither AKA Vittra. Great Swedish horror!
