Two Teaser Trailers for the Norwegian Film Thale


Norway continues to fascinate us with its output of genre product.  The latest project to get our attention: Thale, a tale culled from Norwegian folklore that is opening overseas next month.

Directed by Aleksander Nordaas, the film is about a “huldra” – a woman with a cow’s tale who appears normal from the front, but from behind she is “hollowed out” like a tree trunk.  From Wikipedia:

In some traditions, the huldra lures men into the forest to have sexual intercourse with her, rewarding those who satisfy her and often killing those who do not. The Norwegian huldra is a lot less bloodthirsty and may simply kidnap a man or lure him into the underworld. She sometimes steals human infants and replaces them with her own ugly huldrebarn (changeling huldre children). In some cases, the intercourse resulted in a child, being presented to the unknowing father. In some cases, she forces him to marry her.

Now that you know all of that, check out these two teaser trailers and get ready for something unusual.
