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.

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:

The folks at EastWest Distribution have alerted us to their trailer for Isolerad ( Corridor ), written and directed by Johan Lundborg and Johan Storm. Peter Stormare ( Constantine ) co-stars in this film about a lonely medical student Frank (Emil Johnsen) who 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 (Stormare), they all seem to be Frank's enemies. Corridor is hitting the Berlin film market next month. »
