For years, Nissen (Jørgen
Langhelle), a serialkiller in a Santa outfit, has killed every Christmas,
but then he got caught by detective Rash (Stig Henrik Hoff) - who has
since lost it though, unable to deal with the cruelty he encountered on
his path to track down and capture Nissen. But that was 6 years ago, now -
and it's near Christmas for sure - Nissen has escaped jail, and unable to
track him down on his own, detective Hansen (Sondre Krogtoft Larsen)
enlists the help of Rasch again, even if he seems drunk most of the time,
and his methods of investigation are more than a bit eccentric ...
Christmas Eve, the most Northern
corner of Norway: A bunch of teens meet for a reunion, fuelled with drugs
and sex and alcohol - but the party's just not going as well as it should
when Katja (Yassmine Johansen) finds out her boyfriend Christian (Andreas
Nonaas) has once had an affair with Ritika (Haddy Jallow), and Ritika
hasn't given up on him yet. And before you know it, Christian and Ritika
are kicked out of the party into the snowy streets, with nowhere to go -
and of course they meet Nissen on their way to wherever ...
You might have already guessed it from my synpsis, Christmas
Blood is a slasher movie, and one that follows genre rules pretty much
to the t - so fans of the slasher movie will of course love it, because it
is well-conceived, its suspense sequences and scares are well-placed, and
it's proper violent for sure. Plus, the snowy Norwegian backdrops do lend
a welcomely unusual flavour to the proceedings, and the cast really give
the movie their all - so even if you're not really into slashers you
might like this one, and if you're a fan, this one's really for you.
