Frostbite

"Exciting, funny and enjoyable... a thrill ride with bites" - Moviexclusive

Sweden. Vampires. They seem made for one another. While Scandinavian film in general is known mostly for its arthouse fare, here comes Anders Banke to shake things up with his biting (ha, ha) vampire comedy.

We begin in World War Two with a troop of Scandinavian troops allied with Germany pinned down behind enemy lines. Their numbers dwindling and nightfall threatening to kill them all with cold the few remaining survivors make a mad dash into the woods where they stumble upon their apparent salvation: an isolated cottage where they can hide in warmth and safety for the night. But safety is a relative term and there's something hiding in the cellar...

Jump forward to modern times and a teenage girl being forced to move to Sweden's far north -- so far north that night can last for entire seasons -- by her doctor-mother who hopes to work with a famed blood researcher. Cue the mysterious disappearances, teen rebellion, vampirism inducing party drugs, and even a talking dog and you end up with Frostbite, an incredibly polished genre picture that's more Buffy than Nosferatu and a whole lot of fun. Let the bloodletting begin! - Todd Brown
