‘Cadaver’ Trailer: A Play Gets Bloody in Netflix’s First Norwegian Film
Check out the trailer Netflix released for Corpsea psychological horror film that marks the streaming giant’s Norwegian original feature debut.
The film is set in the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, where much of this particular city has been left in ruins and its population stricken with poverty. A couple and their young daughter are invited by a local hotel to attend a play, with the promise of food and entertainment. They soon discover that this immersive experience and the dark turns it takes…are all too real.
The trailer suggests a sleek and dark outing, with a heavy dose of satire in play as well. Maybe it could work well as a double bill with Netflix’s Spanish-language movie The platform? I can’t wait to check it out.
Corpsewritten and directed by Jarand Breian Herdal and starring Gitte Witt, Thorbjørn Harr and Thomas Gullestad, will stream on Netflix from October 22.
Synopsis for Corpse:
In the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, Leonora (Gitte Witt), Jacob (Thomas Gullestad) and their daughter Alice (Tuva Olivia Remman) are on the verge of survival. One day, the local hotel invites survivors to attend a play, with a meal included, as part of a charitable effort to help those in need. Left with no choice, the family of three decides to go to the hotel, where the director, Mathias (Thorbjørn Harr), presents the entire hotel as the stage. The participants are given masks to separate them from the actors, but the play takes an eerie turn when audience members begin to disappear. The border between reality and theater quickly blurs, until Alice disappears in front of Leo and Jacob, and there is no longer any room for doubt: something is wrong in Mathias’ hotel.
