After Annika, a medical doctor, gets work at the local hospital, she and her 17-year old daughter Saga move to a small town in northern Sweden. Annika is keen to work with her idol, geneticist Professor Gerhard Beckert. However Beckert's sinister past in the Waffen-SS soon catches up with him when a couple of pill-popping interns mistake an experimental vaccine for party drugs. Mayhem ensues as the town's teenagers succumb one by one to the mysterious virus. Written by Samiel_23

Trivia

Was a commercial failure in Sweden due to not being able to find Swedish distributors. The biggest distributor in Sweden did not want to give it a big release and did not give it much promotion thinking it was too low quality. Ironically it was by far the most popular Swedish movie in international markets that year. See more »

Goofs

In the final battle, Joel can be seen walking towards Jacob like a zombie in the background when Jacob asks if Saga is alright. The camera cuts to Saga for a brief moment. When it cuts back to Jacob Joel is not there. See more »

Quotes

John: Come in!
Saga: We haven't meet but...
John: I know. You're Vega's mystery date! Glad to see you. My name is John.

Where did the 21 big salmons go
27 February 2006 | by film_tobbeSee all my reviews

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Bad focus from time to time. Lack of creativity.

EDITING: Pretty good considering the cinematography.

ACTING: Various

LIGHTING: Nice but i prefer fog and mist-lighting effects in horror movies.

MUSIC: Very well written and performed. Almost too good to work effectively together with some of the scenes. Gets too melodramatic at times, like the old silent films that scared the crap out the audience a long time ago.

DIRECTING: ?

VAMPIRES: Super nice! Realistic make up and CG.

SCARE: Bad timing in editing and bad choice of camera angles. If the movie tries to make the audience jump out of their seats with fear, we jump with laughter.

HUMOUR: Funny situations appear in the story. Maybe the next Swedish film project.

OPENING SCENE: Boring and not quite convincing.

SCRIPT: Correct thinking in structure but unfortunately, some of the characters feel superfluous. Vampire-Sebastian would be a lot more fun idea for a movie.

OTHER COMMENTS: They have overseen some of the best opportunities to capture beautiful and scary scenes involving white snow, fog and blood. Desipite the fact that the action is taking place in the middle of the cold winter, this wasn't used as a physical problem for the characters. I believe it was much colder for the slow working film crew than what was captured in the final result of the film. Where did all the money go?
