Creepy and virtually unseen Swedish slasher.
24 January 2009 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Jonas Cornell's "Månguden" was shown two or three times on SVT in 1988 and has since then been lost.SVT refuses to provide it or request absurd amount of money for it(which is probably a sign that they do not want it released)and the only way is trying to get it illegally.The film is about one policeman hunting a serial killer who slaughters campers with machete wearing African Moongod mask.This moody Swedish slasher/cop thriller is nearly impossible to get.The killer named The Moongod looks truly creepy and the film wisely uses Swedish wilderness to create a truly overwhelming atmosphere of dread and fear.The two murders shown are intense and effective.Heinz Hopf from Bo Arne Vibenius revenege classic "Thriller:A Cruel Picture" has a small,but as usual for him,creepy part and an old filmreel is used as an important clue,reminding a bit of the gialli-obsession of tape recordings.7 out of 10.

Please release this slasher for the public to see!
