The beginning of something huge.

Ronny Carlsson is a Swedish young, talented and very creative director who for many years has occupied itself with zero budget films. For him it's all about thought, structure and finesse restated to the main aid parts. I got acquainted with Ronny via a previous forum when he was doing his earlier project "Crow Films". This was during a period when he made ​​childish horror movie-parodies, but I do Believe that Ronny realized his talent and during the maturation process he began instead proceed in a much more serious employment - which today goes under the title "Film Bizarro Productions" .

Video Geisteskrank is the first part of an anthology. It is like most torture films - psychologically stressful and difficult to absorb. I do not stress it as something negative, but a certain type of people do not realize the charm of experimental art-house. Film is generally a kind of total art, "Video Geisteskrank " is something extra beyond the technical. With a twinkle in Ronnys eye he has scratched up something that no one in Swedish film history previously obtained, he is thus very independent in this form of the genre in Sweden. The only competitors would in such cases be Nicolas Debot , Lotta Möller and Magnus Gillberg , but I do not think Ronny needs to feel particularly threatened in this case.

Much of the film's inspiration is clearly taken from previous Toe-Tag Pictures and Maggot Films, which are two American film studios that occupy themselves with extreme films and art-house. Picture and sound is the ultimate basic concept in Video Geisteskrank which making the movie interesting , and if not, it generates at least one form of irritation.

It is clear that the make-up effects did not cost a substantial amount of money. As a zero-budget director takes what he have and doing the best for the situation , and that is something that Ronny has definitely done well. The soundtrack is also an important part of the project - highlighting the film's true nature. Here the music is composed by Ronny's own music project "Groronodor".

Video Geisteskrank is obviously the comic part from a series of three and I got some good laughs. Ronny knows how to play with his audience in a very blunt and psychological ways. The classic silent-film theme are sometimes the most fun and it got me for a moment to forget those tough parts. The film is not longer than 20 minutes long and you have the opportunity to behold the works so I think you should give it a chance. It is a very rare Swedish film who takes you to a higher level of cinematography and Ronny Carlsson shall have a great credit for that.
