Scandinavian cinema has always been a different genre. the depiction of character, the screenplay, subtleness etc. are always top notch.
A perfect example is Villmark (2003) AKA Dark Woods a creepy Norwegian horror or more than a horror.
Set in the Norwegian landscape, a TV crew and their fanatic boss want to shoot a show to survive in the wilds which will eventually make a mark in Reality television history. He (Gunnar) has gathered a production team of four people. The team goes to Gunnar's log cabin where he used to spend summers as a kid. And soon the crew has to survive the thrill, horror, suspicion and mistrust.
The choice of the cast is fantastic and we see some amazing performances which will keep the adrenaline up and frightening atmosphere almost up to the mark.
However there are some resemblances with "The Blair witch project", but it's original and scary enough, screenplay is far from clichés.
European movies more open to interpretation and not made for certain targeted audiences. It's up to the viewer, to read between the lines and understand the happenings.
An astonishing thriller.
