Product Description

Product Description

Norwegian fantasy horror in which a pair of cleaners encounter a mythical creature in a basement. Leo (Jon Sigve Skard) and Elvis (Erlend Nervold) are used to the gruesome and macabre. As crime scene cleaners, they arrive after the police have done their work to remove the body and clean up the mess. They encounter the most surprising sight yet on one of their assignments when they discover Thale (Silje Reinåmo) in a basement. Struck by her almost supernatural beauty, they begin to associate Thale with huldras, alluring creatures from Norwegian folklore that lured men to their death. In spite of her apparent helplessness, will Thale lead Leo and Elvis to a similar fate?

This is a very clever little film; a modern interpretation of an old Scandinavian folk tale about another race of fey woodland folk who live alongside humans, but are seldom seen.

Except it's not told from that perspective at all. Instead it starts out like a fairly standard schlock-horror movie, with two young lads cleaning up crime scenes (and one of them losing his lunch at the sight and smell of the gore). They go to the next scene in a remote forest location... totally isolated... uncover a secret subterranean complex underneath an old cabin... inside which lurks...
Ah. Not telling. You've got to watch it to find out.
The story then shifts from predictable Hollywood axe-murder horror to something far more subtle and rewarding. There are some truly tense moments (the cassette recorder playback scene had me squeaking), and the odd splatter of violence. But there's also some subtly snarky humour, and some genuinely affecting moments of quiet human connection.
Thale doesn't overstay its welcome, so it's quite short. The visual effects are obviously low-budget and a bit hinky, but they suit the overall weird / freaky / oddness of it all (as does the foreign language dialogue: be aware that this is subtitled in English).

A totally unexpected gem of a B-movie.

Enjoyable low-budget romp through the Norwegian mythological undergrowth, with a few twists to the tail as well... The plot's a bit creaky at times, and the camera-work is not the best either, but that doesn't detract from the film at all. I also enjoyed the wonderful Troll Hunter [Blu-ray] and that's also low-budget, but brilliant. Thale is quite a different film to Troll Hunter, but is still a whole lot of fun. I won't give away any of the plot, but it is quite suspenseful and will keep you on the edge of your seat at times. Well worth a watch if you like something a bit different.

This is described as a horror movie, but it isn't at all. It's a quiet, haunting fantasy about creatures from Nordic folklore, forest creatures that appear to be beautiful women. It's low-budget, but very atmospheric with a fairytale feel to it. A very unusual, lovely little film.

At first I was rather put off by the Horror label this is NOT a horror but it is a bit 'sit on the edge of your seat is something going to pop out at me' tense at times. I am a notorious scaredy cat and I really enjoyed this, after the initial slow start I got hooked. There were some questions at the end like how come a bath kept Thale so different from her sisters? but they evaporated when I remembered this is a fantasy and some things are better not being fully explained. This is apparently low budget like 'Ink' a film I watched yesterday and while quite different I really appreciate the extra work writers and film makers have to go through to tell their stories convincingly without super fx. Actually having said that the CGI in this is good and believable(mostly) and I enjoyed the relationship between the two lead male characters developing on screen and Silja who plays Thale is great she is magnetic and terrifying at one moment and lost little girl at the other.
In conclusion I would recommend this film to anyone who likes films that make you think and its a shame they had a small budget as I suspect the vision of this film could have been further explored and been even better. Having said that I am discovering I like low budget films here on Amazon.
Just watch it give it time to warm up this is a nice little mystery fantasy and it is so worth watching, you'll feel like you found a hidden Gem....hopefully!

Absolutely exceptional film with zero faults. Its original, unusual and strangely beautiful film that has excellent characters and surprises.
I wont go through plot as amazon has already done it. Its clearly European I don't think we could produce such a magical film.
So well constructed inc characters and our female protagonist, wonderful acting, faultless film

I seem to remember this advertised as Erotic. I think this is pushing the boat out a bit on that score, but it is a goodun. Subtitles don't put me off, especially as nowadays you have to watch most mumbling US Movies with Subtitles on anyway!

Engaging film that opens with some grisly black humour then evolves into a fairy tale in the true tradition of the genre, albeit morphed into modern times. Not overlong, not overly intellectual, worth a watch if you fancy a change from the usual fare.
