It is quiet throughout the country. Everybody is glued to the TV watching the final. Not a single sole is seen in the streets. In the outskirts of Denmark however, a small gas station still needs to be open for business - even on this particular night. And on this evening two very different young women are on duty. Agnes, a dedicated college student, sneaks into the backroom trying to work on her thesis, while naïve Belinda is texting away trying to get the attention of her boyfriend. Unfortunately, the shift is not going to be as uneventful as they think, because no customers also means no witnesses. And they are spotted out to play a special part in a completely different game.Written by
The prologue is an homage to the original prologue in James Whale's Frankenstein (1931) - almost exact wording. See more »
Please state your name? Please Agnes. Let the audience get to know you a little bit. What is your name?
Agnes Berger. How old are you?
29? 29! Your audience would like to know more about you, Agnes. Apart from working at a gas station what is it you really wanted to do with your life?
Psychology? Fantastic! Ladies and Gentlemen. We have a psycho with us tonight.

If you think the final scene in Tarantino's latest is too-much, wait until you see what happens here, when a maniac abducts two gas station attendants and display them as merchandise for a live streaming horror show. Having to work on a historic day when Denmark enters the World Cup's finals, the ladies try their best to avoid boredom. They end up being the prey of such a bizarre game where the viewers decide their destiny- including torching them, cutting their legs off, and piercing their nipples. An extremely gore, efficient, gruesome and smart take on the abduction genre, Søren Juul Petersen's directorial debut is an impressive and bold display of human cruelty.
