Goodbye & Goodnight-Talkshow with Johan innan Dead Shack

late night

Every festival day will end with a talk show at Stadshallen were the festival director will be telling more or less wacky anecdotes from my festival years, interview guests, the audience, other LIFFF workers and a host of other fun people. There might be a live band and every night will see a movie being told in episodic form! If you’re going out you might as well do it with a BANG!  Read More

Dead Shack

Jason joins his best friend Colin and his family for a relaxing (haha) weekend in a remote cabin in the woods that they found on Craigslist. Their company is Colin’s sister whom Jason is bashfully in love with and their father and his somewhat alcoholic girlfriend. For the three teenagers, relaxing means boring and they are understandably not that keen on having a ‘relaxing weekend’ in the middle of nowhere with two drunk adults. They may not know that ‘boring’... Read More

Egomaniac

ego

The best zom-rom-com of all time. Should it be so hard to put together financing, a reasonably competent team, sensible producers and somewhat credible actors for the best-ever romantic zombie comedy? The simple answer is: yes. Catherine Sweeney is unfortunately forced to learn this the hard and bloody way. Financiers tell her that she desperately needs a talking dog in the script for the film to work, men wonder why she, as a woman is dealing with horror in the first place and... Read More

Ash is back! The hero from the cult film Evil Dead may be old and tired, but his chainsaw isn’t. The horror comedy of the fall, from Starz, premieres during Halloween.

Love

It is easy to make the argument that with films such as Irréversible and Enter the Void, Gaspar Noé is the enfant terrible, par excellence of the 2000’s. His personal appearance, which resembles Anton LaVey channeling a 70’s porn star, does nothing to hide his cinematic intentions. So it should come as a surprise to no one that Noé’s first feature in six years made the audience at the premiere in Cannes lose their proverbial shit, and had fights breaking out during its... Read More

Suburban Gothic

suburbangothic

When Raymond (Matthew Gray Gubler) is suddenly forced by circumstance to move from his own big city apartment and return to his conservative, hard-ass dad (played by Ray Wise, Twin Peaks) and picture-perfect, never-a-hair-out-of-place mom in Suburbia, he finds himself in a situation that just seems hauntingly familiar. Maybe because his room is a perfect time capsule from when he was about ten. Or maybe because he, for the first time since he was a kid, starts seeing ghosts again. Teaming... Read More
