I Like Horror Movies
Notebooks and tape recordings give clues that she has been there for decades, and that she has been subjected to strange surgeries. Gradually, the truth is revealed that she isn't quite human, but something else....and that others know about her and are seeking her...Silje Reinamo, the actress who plays the girl, is stunningly beautiful and portrays her character, who has never had contact with anyone except her captor, with delicacy and feeling. I really liked this film and hope to see Silje in others.
This movie was pretty "neat" but ultimately lacked the impressive storytelling (of Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale), character development (of Let The Right One In) or creature-based intrigue (of Troll Hunter) of other genre-fan-acclaimed Scandinavian favorites. If you like any of these other movies then you'll probably find Thale's allure to be irresistible. Just set your expectations appropriately for more of a good idea presented as a single-serving; almost an extended one-act augmented by flavorful flashbacks.
Leo (Jon Sigve Skard) and Elvis (Erlend Nervold) run "No Shit Cleaning Service." They are basically a dead body clean-up crew and Leo is much more strong-stomached than his queasy partner. On one of their jobs disposing of a dead man they come across an underground dwelling that looks like a mix of a science lab and a bomb shelter complete with weird recordings as if made by a researcher on his stenograph. While exploring this "lab" they find a strange, mute, naked woman (Silje Reinåmo; Bak lukkede dører).
The recordings reveal that she is "Thale", that she has been down there for decades without food, and that there are others like her and that they want her--or something from her. Thale possesses preternatural strength and the gift of ESP/Telepathy, which she uses to communicate to Elvis why she was being kept down in that bunker.
As Leo and Elvis try to figure out exactly who (or even what) Thale is, their stay in the bunker becomes a fight for survival against "something or someone." Meanwhile, we gradually learn more about Thale, her origin and those who seek her.Read more ›

Interesting - not really horror, but not whimsical either. Running time is quite short.Published 6 months ago by Stephen F Saunders
This is not a horror film although through most of it you think that's what is going on. I do suppose there is some horror, chiefly that of humanity's need to do painful research... Read morePublished 6 months ago by MaiTai
I thought this was a great movie, but not for reasons you might suspect, as most of us Americans might turn their nose up at such a film. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Kinah Perez
