Product Description

Swedish vampire comedy horror set in Lapland. Annika (Petra Nielsen) and her 17-year-old daughter Saga (Grete Havneskold) have moved to a small town in Lapland to start a new life. In the permanent night of the polar winter, Saga at first finds things boring and uneventful - until she makes a new friend at school, black-haired goth Vega (Emma Aberg). Before long, strange events starts to take place in the town, with dead bodies found drained of blood. As the sense of impending dread increases, it becomes more unbearable than ever to think that there is still more than a month to go until dawn...

From Amazon.co.uk

Annika and her teenage daughter, Saga, move to a sleepy Northern Swedish town to begin a new life in a medical research centre. Closely located to Lapland there is only a few hours of daylight each day before complete darkness covers the region. Whilst Annika is working at the hospital under the chief geneticist Beckert she discovers that he has been working to find a cure for vampirism, but seduced by power he has instead turned himself into a super being. Annika is determined to expose him but unbeknown to her some pills from his lab have been stolen and half the teenage population are going through a transformation in this new vampire playground. Will Annika and Sage escape before they both succumb to this town's secret?

I am surprised at some of the lukewarm reviews here, as I thought 'Frostbite' was not only one of the best vampire films I have ever seen but was executed with real skill by director Anders Banke. Delicious cinematography, an interesting but not overplayed story and decent performances from the cast made this a riveting watch from start to finish.

Banke clearly knows his stuff and doesn't miss a trick throughout this tale of a town that is beseiged by a vampire plague during a month of perpetual darkness (think '30 Days of Night'). The run-time is perfect and every scene makes the most of the worthy script, building intrigue and tension. The story is wisely kept relatively simple, though not at the expense of intelligence. It's superbly crafted but just doesn't bog the viewer down with unnecessary exposition. The underlying humour also makes sure that this film never reaches the realms of pretension.

As for the vampires, they are pretty vicious and uncompromising and their relentless massacre of the town's human inhabitants is painted quite bleakly by the end. They are near unstoppable and the ending (not to spoil things too much) suits this portrayal nicely. I also enjoyed how the film focused on the newly infected vampires dealing with the change, rather than the tried and tested method of following humans in their desperate attempts to survive (though this is in here too!) There's also a fair bit of blood and guts, though this thankfully never substitutes the narrative.

Of course, I should say that it won't be a movie for those who aren't into vamps or horror in general. Also, the fact that it's a Swedish film sadly means that many will never even hear of it, never mind actively seek it out. But, if it were a mainstream movie, then surely cult status would beckon for this little gem. If this is your thing, I urge you to give it a go.

A very funny and estheticly perfect film. The plot follows Annika(Petra Nielsen) and her daughter Saga(Grete Havnesköld) who move way up north to Norrland(Swedish for Northland) where the sun is gone for a month every winter. Saga makes friend with the strange goth-chic Vega(Emma T. Åberg). However, the town has a dark secret; a family of vampires originating from Ukraine and soon Saga's new friends scumb to the plague of vampirism.

Frostbite has many very funny scenes and a few really scary ones. The the film has a slick look much thanks to director of photography Chris Maris, the best score I ever heard in a Swedish film written by the ingenious Anthony Lledo supported by Swedish rock from The Hives and Millencolin and some Russian folktunes not to mention the amazing special make-up effects. The acting is mostly solid, the leads doing a great job especially Emma T. Åberg and Jonas Karlström as medstudent turned vampire. Some of the minor characters are acted awefully but they do not get much screen time.

There are some unforgetable images such as the main vampire pulsing through the snow dragging his own coffin behind him, red blood dripping into white snow, vampires climbing over a house like spiders, a vampire impaled on a garden gnome(!), the brilliant dinner and morgue scenes not to mention the hillarious headphone vampire(Niklas Grönberg).

The film's only flaw is that it ends when the fun has really begun and leaves you wishing for more.

When I first saw this I thought it was a cheap attempt at doing a vampire film....ben says its awful! he ought to see the ludicrous amount of soft porn attempting to convey vampire stories with awful results...frostbite has pace, vampires, the director really knows his subject, if this was american and in English the cinemas would have lapped it up...he ought to look at the penguin book of vampire stories and do one in hollywood...no Ben..you are a bit harsh...it is all vampire
