4K Thriller to be screened

Arguably the most well known Scandinavian exploitation film, Thriller will be screened from a new 4K print in attendance of star Christina Lindberg. But only in the US, and only at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, TX, and only on November 11th, and only once. If you make the effort of going there, you will…

Preview: A God Without a Universe

Horror is a movie genre where the concept of pushing limits is possible and expected; maybe that’s why the Danish feature A God Without a Universe became a horror drama rather than just another bleak Scandinavian kitchen sink filler. Made on a shoestring budget of 60.000 DKK (around 8000 euros) and released in 2015, A…

Review: Svart Snø

If your teacher gets fired for making violent movies during the weekends, would you not be curious about those movies?

The American whore

Review: Hot nasty teen

Nobody quite expected that the last movie to star Brasse Brännström would be a rape-revenge story in which the beloved children’s TV actor played a pimp, trafficking a 15 year old girl for money. When Lars Erik “Brasse” Brännström died unexpectedly in August 2014, parts of the childhood of hundreds of thousands of Swedes died…

Review: Gisela – Blut und Leder

Norway continues to innovate on the exploitation front, this time with the first fully filled nazisploitation feature, complete with naked goodies and robosoldiers. Granted, Dead Snow parts 1 and 2 had nazis and gore in them, but they were not “nazisploitation” films. That’s why it is still fun to observe exploitation newbies like Norway because…

Dyke Hard poster
