Root of Darkness sneak preview

Friday the 1st of July we had a sneak preview of our coming feature Root of Darkness the day before Kultfilmsfestivalen (Den Magiska Biodagen) at theater Palladium in Alingsås, Sweden. It was fun to be able to show the movie for the first time. Gustav Ljungdahl the director was there including Jesper Danielsson, his co-writer and head star in Root of Darkness. The score is composed by the very talented Mark Kueffner. Produced by Jonas Wolcher and René Wiesner.
Gustav Ljungdahl was interviewed for Bitches of Horror by Sarah Giercksky
