Film: Thale

“Troll Hunter’s twisted cousin” exclaims the poster. But does this Norwegian folklore flick meet the same high standard?

Leo and Elvis are specialised cleaners, they clean crime scenes and houses where the dead have lain for quite some time. While cleaning a remote cabin they make a startling discovery, one of the occupants is still very much alive.

Meet Thale, a beautiful young woman who has apparently been kept captive in the cabin. It soon emerges that Thale isn’t exactly a typical 20-something. She can sense illness and impart her memories through touch. As the guys wait for help to arrive others begin to sense Thale’s presence.

The film mostly takes place in the cabin and relies heavily on the performances of the three main actors. Thankfully they are up to the job and we are treated to a tense and creepy film that even manages to handle the weirdness on display very well indeed.

Thale isn’t quite as good as Troll Hunter but it isn’t far off it and will appeal greatly to fans of that film.

Thale is available on DVD in the UK from 25th March 2013.

Ric’s Rating: Highly Recommended. 


  1. I did enjoy Troll Hunter, so I'll have to look for this one. Scary and creepy are really hard to find these days.

  2. It sounds interesting. Good acting would be a bonus...

  3. But it wasn't till I taught myself the guitar at the age of 18 that I started writing and playing on my own a bit. Before moving to LA I actually was part of an indie rock band in Sydney. I'd written a bunch of songs over a few years and a mate suggested we start a band together so we did. دانلودفیلم

  4. Plus there is a glut of indie movies being made because technology has made it more affordable to make movies.

  5. If you love movies, then you know full well that any of the TV providers has virtually the same packages available. When it comes to who has the best movie channel package, what it actually comes down to is bundled packages, pricing and what other movie sources are available to give you even more access to great movies and shows you want to watch. good movies to watch

  6. Although a full transition from the current mail delivery system to a download type of service will take time, it is clear that immediacy will only continue to improve. It would seem that other online movie rental services would follow suit in coming years in order to compete. เว็บหนังออนไลน์
