Thale: DVD Review

Rating: R13
Released by Vendetta Films

Thale is a Norwegian folklore horror film.

It recalls a mix of early X Files spookiness and Norwegian bleakness as proffered up by way of Rare Exports.

A duo, Leo and Elvis, who clean crime scenes, end up at a seemingly deserted cabin in the woods (always with the cabins) cleaning up after an old man goes missing and half his body remains.

When the duo discover a huldra, a sacred forest creature in the basement, it all goes a bit haywire.

Mixing a few scares and some relative low budget horror, Thale is a short and relatively creepy sweet treat. It pulls together a good atmosphere, some nice lo-fi thrills and shocks and is a curious mix of spooky and weird nature.

Rating: 6/10
