Drop dead Hannibal Lecter!
30 June 2002 | by landunSee all my reviews

This is like Shadow of the Vampire (2000), but for real. The film is filled with mentally irrational decisions, extremely dark scenery, and murders that would scare Hannibal Lecter himself. I was only five years old when Ernst-Hugo Järegård starred as "Veberödsmannen", and it took me an additional ten years until I first saw the film. Being fifteen, "Veberödsmannen" scared me in a way only Ernst-Hugo could have done. Not even Jack Nicholson in Shining, The (1980) is comparable in terms of eeriness and pure frightfulness. This is a work of art. A work of barbaric chiaroscuro.

The title of the movie somewhat translates to "Murders in Skåne - Veberödsmannen". Whereas "Skåne" is a county in the kingdom of Sweden, and "Veberödsmannen" is an incognito of a mentally disturbed man who went on a killing streak in the early 1900's.
