Elin and her husband Tobias’s camping trip becomes a nightmare when they are terrorized by a trio of right shady characters who suddenly emerge from the depths of the forest. What is it like to be stuck in a horrible dream? And even worse, to have to relive it over and over again? Believe it: the song that lent its name to this perversely humorous picture will be stuck in your head for a long time.
Elin and Tobias’s marriage isn’t what it used to be, and so they try to fix things by spending time together outdoors. But after they are unexpectedly visited by a trio of twisted characters, they find themselves caught in a cycle of horrific events that blurs the line separating reality from the most terrifying dreams imaginable. Johannes Nyholm’s horror tale pulls audiences into the depths of an absurdly sadistic world where two people are forced to face agonizing sorrow and pure evil in equal measure. Through a combination of live action and animation, a dark, perversely humorous movie emerges that allows viewers to experience what it’s like to find oneself trapped in an inexplicable loop of fate.
