We have travelled the globe in the course of the podcast to discuss the horror genre output from specific countries or locales and have met with a lot of success. This week we travel to far north to take a look at what a geographical group of nations are up to – Nordic Horror.
Expanding beyond the subset of countries known as Scandinavia we are discussing films from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and even Iceland this week, once again finding ourselves surprised at what we found. Featuring some visually stunning locations, the unique wintery setting of frigid terror, and a particular brand of dark humour, there are titles here for all fans of horror. Some of the movies covered include revisits with Let the Right One In, Troll Hunter, Dead Snow, Rare Exports and others but there is also Frostbiten, Harpoon aka Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre, Blood Runs Cold, Drowning Ghost and all three instalments of the Cold Prey franchise. With plenty more titles to go there is sure to be another chapter to our exploration of Nordic Horror coming soon.
Following a chilling discussion of frozen horror, we chat about some recent watches including Chronicle, Ghost Rider 2(!), The Walking Dead. We announce a brand new giveaway courtesy of our friends at Solaris / Rebellion Press offering up prize packages of 4 sets of 4 graphic novels! Spin us a yarn to enter.
Finally, a word of warning… Ted is in a rare mood thanks to a very trying week. Tune in for the details.
