We Are the Sprocket Holes vol. 115

Denmark Gets Bloody With Nazi Slasher FINAL SOLUTION

Nordic film is in the midst of a drastic paradigm shift. After decades of being the land of pure arthouse film the new generation is taking over and bringing their love of genre film with them. We've had ghost stories emerge from the region, wuxia films, rock and roll creature features and - increasingly, but not surprisingly given their proximity and history - a growing wave of Nazi themed titles. We've had Nazi zombies. Soon we will have Nazi spacemen. And now, from Denmark's Martin Bech, we have a full blooded Nazi slasher.

During the second World War in Nazi occupied Denmark, local fishermen helped Jews flee to the neutral grounds of Sweden. The trip was not cheap and came at an even higher price for the Landau family who where forced to leave their youngest daughter Emma behind. Here she would be hidden by her mothers friend, waiting for a chance to follow her family.

The Nazis employed fishermen of their own to ferry the fleeing Jews to a remote and hidden Extermination Camp deep in the dark forests of Sweden. This became the fate of Emma´s entire family.

As time passed, Emma grew up watching the Nazis lose the war, the powers in Europe shift and her mothers friend pass away. Never getting any news about her family´s fate, she decides to follow their trail and uncover what happened to them in Sweden. But what she and her friends found was evil beyond their wildest imagination.
The film is Final Solution and the first teaser arrived just hours ago. Take a look below.
