Fantastic Fest Interview: 'Corridor' Filmmakers

10 October 2010 10:59 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Swedish screenwriters and directors Johan Storm and Johan Lundborg attended Fantastic Fest this year for the American debut of two films -- the thriller Corridor (Isolerad) and a 30-minute short film, Rosenhill. Both of these suspenseful movies were well received by audiences at Fantastic Fest, and you can read my review of Corridor. Emil Johnsen, lead actor from Corridor was also here to support the film at both Q&As.

I sat down during the fest with "the Johans" to discuss their films, as well as differences between American and European film audiences and festivals. Johan Storm's uncle is actor Peter Stormare, and we also talked about his involvement in Corridor. Here's what they had to say:

What's it been like to screen Corridor at Fantastic Fest?

Johan Storm: It was the second screening ever of the film. It was a tremendous experience to see it with an audience that good, »

Fantastic Fest Review: Corridor

9 October 2010 8:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

I strongly believe that anyone who proclaims themselves a horror fan should be required to read Danse Macabre, Stephen King's non-fiction commentary on horror fiction in print, radio and film. Although it was written almost 30 years ago, his often-academic examination into the influences on his writing is extremely insightful. One discussion that I think of time and time again is his classification of the horror genre into three levels: terror, horror and revulsion. King further states that terror is the "finest element," and one he strives for himself. He defines terror as the suspenseful moment before the actual monster is revealed -- horror is when we actually see the monster. Finally, King equates revulsion with the gag reflex, a bottom level which he considers a cheap gimmick.

One of the horror films that I saw at Fantastic Fest this year captured the finest element of terror, so much that »

Scandinavian Interiors: "Corridor" and "Fatso," Reviewed

24 September 2010 5:05 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Reviewed at Fantastic Fest 2010.

The lonely men of the Swedish "Corridor" and the Norwegian "Fatso" have a lot in common. They live by themselves, they're uncomfortable with other people, they like to eat in front of their TVs, and their solitary lives are disrupted by flaky, outgoing girls who drive them nuts with their loud lovemaking and demands for interaction.

The woman in "Corridor" (written and directed by the Johans Lundborg and Storm) is Lotte (Ylva Gallon), a hairdresser who corrals her downstairs neighbor Frank (Emil Johnsen) into first helping her move desk, then in loaning her some laundry detergent, then in shifting her boyfriend Micke's (Peter Stormare) motorcycle. Micke has some anger issues, and Frank, an anal-retentive med student who would rather spend all of his time studying, finds the addition of Lotte and her lover to the building begins to really get in the way of his work. »

18 January 2010 3:19 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Peter Stormare is one of the best character actors out there today, and I'll watch anything he's in (hell, he even made Armageddon slightly tolerable). So it's with excitement that we alert you to his newest film, Corridor.

The kind folks at East West Distribution have sent over this trailer and plot synopsis:

Lonely medical student Frank (Emil Johnsen) is pleased with his flat, a quiet place to focus on his coming exams. But when he meets the girl upstairs, the intrusive Lotte (Ylva Gallon), he realizes there is something wrong with the place. Each time he leaves his apartment, Frank is scared... the talkative concierge, the annoying child, the love-sick Lotte, her brutal ex-boyfriend and above all, her new jealous boyfriend, the scary Micke (Peter Stormare), they all seem to be Frank's enemies.
