Netflix has announced that their first Norwegian original film, “Cadaver”, will launch globally on October 22nd. The film is a psychological horror and stars Gitte Witt (“The impossible”), Thorbjørn Harr (“Vikings”, “July 22”), Thomas Gullestad (“The 12th Man”), Kingsford Siayor (“Home for Christmas”) and more.
In the starving aftermath of a nuclear disaster, Leonora (Gitte Witt), Jacob (Thomas Gullestad) and their daughter Alice (Tuva Olivia Remman) are on the edge of survival. One day, the local hotel invites survivors to attend a theatre play, with a meal included, as a charitable effort to help those in need. Left with no choice, the family of three decide to go to the hotel, where the director, Mathias (Thorbjørn Harr), introduces the entire hotel as the stage. Attendees are given masks to help separate them from actors, but the play takes an eerie turn when audience members start to disappear. The line between reality and theatre quickly gets blurred, until Alice disappears in front of Leo and Jacob, and there’s no longer room for doubt: Something is very wrong with Mathias’ hotel.
