Scandanavian director Tommy Wirkola is known in the United States for Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Now, he has created this film, which was called I onde dager (In Bad Days) in its home country.
It concerns a couple — Noomi Rapace (who played Lisabeth Salander in the original films) and Aksel Hennie — who go away to a cabin to reconnect, but they’re just going to probably murder one another.
In fact, he’s been following her with a noose when she turns around and tases him, awakening him to explain how she was going to kill him and make it look like a hunting accident. That’s when three criminals that have been hiding inside the cabin make their presence known.
This could have been a bit shorter, but with all the black comedy, the blood and the mayhem, I really have no reason to complain.
The Trip will be on Netflix on October 15.
