Trailer of the Day: Thale


The witty and entertaining THALE is based on a mythical female character in Nordic folklore called the “huldra”—a beautiful creature living deep in the woods that seduces men with her songs and is recognizable by her long flowing hair and cow’s tail. According to legend, it’s best not to make a huldra mad. In Nordaas’s imaginative turn on the tale, Elvis and Leo are childhood friends who work together cleaning macabre crime scenes and removing the human remains left behind. Sent to a remote house in the woods to collect the body of an old man who was apparently torn apart by wolves, the pair discover a hidden door and a wild, frightened young woman named Thale, the secret captive of her deceased guardian. They soon discover that others are interested in Thale too … “A nutty Norwegian mash-up of drollery, myth, and jolts to the nervous system, THALE does a deft dance between gross-out comedy and horror fantasy.”—Variety (76 mins.)
