Tobias and Elin (Leif Edlund, Ylva Gallon) head out into the woods for a camping trip; they’re hoping to reconnect after a tragedy, but find themselves terrorized by three peculiar strangers… After his breakthrough film The Giant (2016), Johannes Nyholm made this odd, dark fantasy where a grieving couple face their merry demons, a band of performers who only have pain to offer, again and again. It’s Groundhog Day meets Deliverance, with echoes of Michael Haneke. Very creative, there’s even a shadow play involving bunnies, but it doesn’t really come to a satisfying conclusion.
