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

It's Erland's (Jesper Danielsson) 50th birthday,
and his wife Greta (Katriina Ruottinen) has invited some of their friends and family to their cabin in the woods for a party - and frankly, he could be a whole lot happier about this, as not only does he not enjoy turning 50 or the people who plan on coming, he's also a hobby historian who for some reason just knows some historic artifacts are hidden somewhere on the premises, he has just so far failed to unearth them. But this time round he's lucky for a change - while taking care of the cesspit he finds some weird artefacts including an oddly chiselled skull. Somehow though his blood gets onto the skull which awakens something, then Greta's stung by a splinter from the artefact which causes a rash that soon covers her whole body, makes her head blow open ... and she turns into a monster. And with the guests about to come and being killed off by the monster as they arrive, it's up to Erland (in knight's armour) and the always helpful neighbour Leroy (Hugo Hilton-Brown) to ward of evil - even if they only have a diffuse idea how ...

Claudio Dragonetti is an Italian assassin, one of the best in the industry. He is hired by a local mafia boss in Gothenburg, Ivan. He needs Dragonettis services to get rid of the two competitors. The job is nothing special really. This is something that Claudio Dragonetti done many times before. But this time something goes wrong and he accidentally kills the wrong people. This is appreciated neither by the Mafia or the Swedish authorities and Dragonetti soon finds that he is driven from two directions. But Claudio Dragonetti has a trump card which none o…

Have you heard about Hermit: Monster Killer?

This has become one of the strangest scifi comedies ever produced.
Director Ola Paulakoski (Vietnam 1969 ,Werewolf Chronicles) has created a fantastic story about an old grumpy guy and his dog living in a middle of nowhere fighting a space creature who has crash landed nearby his house. Hermit has been screened on several festivals and last year it got the title Arthouse in Mumbai.
A collaboration with TeebTV and Vidio were made and HeIrmit was screened for the first time on both channels in April 2017. If you haven't watched the movie yet it's still a chance. We are going to screen it for free on TeebTV for another period.

The Predator was awesome and cut.

I remembered when I saw The Predator on VHS for the first time. I'm been having my eyes on the brochure from the renting company for nearly a month. And then finally I got the VHS rental. We put it in the machine and watched it. It was like magic but there were something missing. Like 5 min or pure violence and mayhem. The Swedish Censorship had slashed a perfect movie.
I had to wait until it came on DVD when I saw the original version. And from that day I was in heaven. The Predator has to be one of the cheesiest and coolest manbro movie ever.
Watch it on Bluray/DVD/downloader or Streamer. It doesn't matter. It's still a wonderful action thriller scifi drama with one of the hardest lines ever in film history.
