If you want a cheaper copy of Deep Blue Sea, this is it - and it's not that bad actually. Gore and blood? Yes. Murderous screaming baby sharks? Yay! A reference to Stellan Skarsgårds pissing-against-the-wind-scene from Renny Harlins original? Roaring sharks? Sure! Of course! Surprise deaths? What do you think? ;) Sharks swimming backwards? No, but they're digging tunnels and taking out cameras so everything is forgiven! A pleasant DTV surprise.
It's interesting watching a mondo film when it actually deals with your own home, culture and country. Sweden Heaven and Hell is one insane, fun, bizarre and crazy fucking movie - but basically every thing that's being said by narrator Edmund Purdom is made up, which makes it so unreal to watch. It makes one think, imagine that a lot of people actually thought this was true - how much are we, the "civilized" part of the world fooled by reports from more "exotic" countries?
The four stars come from the entertainment value, not the honesty of the production ;)
I wrote this when Nightmare City first arrived on DVD years ago. It's brilliant and very touching.
"For the love of Nightmare city"
Oh God, how I love Nightmare City
The cast, the script – so witty!
Watching Hugo Stiglitz sleep through his role
Less inspiration than the sleepiest mole!
Maria Risarua Inaggui beautiful and nude
Hey, Francisco Rabal, what a horny dude!
See how the monsters from the plane leap
(and at the same time watching Hugo sleep)
