  • If you tamp down your expectations -- those gaping plot holes are dangerous! -- there is a storm of scary fun to be had in this Scandinavian splatterfest. show more

  • This blood-soaked melodrama -- a far cry from most foreign films -- has been a festival favorite and might well develop a cult following, though it's far too gory to reach beyond the core audience. show more

  • May have a dull title, but it's lively, idiotic fun, at least until it goes too far past "too far" into the realm of "far too far." show more
