Thale: DVD Review
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.
