Sunday was the fourth and last day of the Ramaskrik Horror film festival. Only two more films on my programme until the festival was over, and there was time to catch the train back home.The House That Jack Built
(2018, Denmark): Lars von Trier is an artist, and has always been one of my favourite directors. So I was quite excited about this one. The film does not disappoint. This is probably the most lighthearted film he has made since The Idiots
(1998, Denmark), but as always there's a dark shadow the underlines everything. Humorous, philosophical, dark. Well worth the two and a half hour of your life!Videomannen
(The Videoman, 2018, Sweden): A trip down nostalgia lane for those of us who grew up with VHS, 80's horror films and video rental shops. As director Kristian Söderström said himself when introducing the film, this is not a horror film, but a film about horror and VHS fans. A great film and a great ending of the festival on my part.
Then it's all over. The big empty sets in, and it's time to look forward to Ramaskrik 2019! Which according to unconfirmed rumors is to happen at Oct 17 - 20, 2019. Hope to see you there!
