Storyline

The crew of the TV show "Real TV" with controlling boss Gunnar on the front line will soon begin production of a reality show for which participants are selected to survive in the wilderness. Gunnar has gathered a production team of four people: The friends Lasse and Per , the Swedish girl Elin and the new girl Sara. To test his new employees, Gunnar takes them to a log cabin where he used to spend summers as a kid. The cabin is located far away from civilisation, hidden in the dark, mysterious woods. The team has to make it through a weekend, finding food that nature has to offer, and neither cellular phones nor cigarettes are allowed. When Lasse and Per find a dead body in a lake near the cottage, the group is being tested. Gunnar is suggesting that they should continue the weekend without mentioning anything to Sara and Elin about what they found. But soon the team experiences some escalating incidents which lead to paranoia, accusations and mistrust. Written by Anonymous

A movie worth watching
14 February 2006 | by (Bodø, Norway) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching Villmark (Dark Woods) on DVD. A friend of mine has had the movie for quite a long time, and even though Norwegian media gave the movie a very good rating, I've always been reluctant to watch Norwegian movies. They tend to get overrated in the media since Norway don't produce that many movies.

But this movie was well worth the time, and it surprised me in a good way. The location for the movie is great, it's an average looking Norwegian forest, and that just bring more to the "horror" part, since most Norwegians are familiar with hiking in the wilderness. You will have this movie in the back of your head the next time you're in the forests.

You are also kept in suspense throughout the whole movie, always expecting something to jump out from the shadows, which happens a few times, and scares you good. As for the acting, these are all more or less top actors in Norway, some more seasoned that others. And overall they do a very good job at it. It's not Oscar material but it's very satisfactory.
