Liff 2011: Marianne review

18 December 2011 7:18 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Filip Tegstedt's Marianne stretches the definition of a horror movie by quite some way; there's only one recurring supernatural element and it's left very much open to interpretation as to whether the main character is imagining the whole thing, to the point of openly mocking him. Yet it's not really about the scares, more about the tragedy of a man's psyche visibly imploding - the story of someone who did a terrible thing, where it's slowly revealed to us just how terrible, and how much worse he makes the situation by trying to put everything right without thinking about it first.Krister (Tomas Hedengran) is a teacher living in a quiet Swedish suburb, painstakingly trying to put his life back together after it's taken a particularly »

'Marianne' Review

4 December 2011 1:37 PM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

An old-fashioned ghost story which shows its. big budgeted counterparts how atmosphere and sound can sometimes be the scariest elements of them all , Filip Tegstedt.s .Marianne. is a low-budget wonder.Krister (as played by Thomas Hedengran) is a man whose existence seems to be chiselled out of misery. Not only does he have to contend with the loss of his wife but his relationship with his daughter is on the rocks and he seems to suffer from sleep paralysis of the worst kind. As the strain on his mental health begins to take its. toll, Krister becomes more and more determined to discover the reason behind the vision of a woman who appears to him during his sleep paralysis.Carefully weaving »

Second teaser trailer for Filip Tegstedt’s Swedish horror film Marianne

7 March 2011 12:36 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I was pretty excited after seeing the teaser trailer for Filip Tegstedt’s upcoming horror film Marianne and considering the amount of attention the trailer received, I wasn’t alone in my excitement.

The first teaser for the film, which stars Thomas Hedengran and Peter Stormare, was beautiful and creepy and this second teaser follows a very similar set-up, using images and music to build tension. The images here are even odder than the first but you definitely get the feeling that something is amiss.

If you missed the first teaser, be sure to check it out here. The new teaser is after the break. »

Peter Stormare strikes again in a creepy trailer for the Swedish horror film Marianne

15 February 2011 1:15 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

For his debut as writer/director, Filip Tegstedt chose to make a psychological horror movie because “there really haven’t been that many good Swedish horror films” and really, good horror films are generally hard to find anywhere never mind limiting that to Sweden.

So for his first, Tegstedt rounded up some familiar faces and set off to shoot Marianne, a small town psychological horror drama set in Östersund with roots in Swedish folklore which “tells of a man’s struggle to deal with his inner conflicts following the passing of his wife.”

I was already curious about this production and then I read that the film stars the formidable Peter Stormare (one of my favourites) and Thomas Hedengran. I didn’t need any additional information to add this to my watch list but it helps a great deal that the trailer is gorgeous and effective on creep factor.

Trailer after the break. »
