Rolling in today, we have the Swedish chiller “Mara” and poster art
Making her feature film acting debut, popular Swedish model Angelica Jansson stars as Jenny, who as a little girl witnessed a brutal, gruesome murder. An utterly grotesque act committed by an insane woman. A violent deed that has forever scarred Jenny.
Along with four friends, Jenny — now an adult — returns to the scene where the murder was committed: a picturesque but secluded house in the woods. The five friends intend to have a nice time and to party, but the stay is also supposed to serve as therapy for Jenny. She wants to confront her past.
What was supposed to be a relaxing weekend in the countryside becomes a blood-soaked nightmare when it turns out that the five friends aren’t alone in the house. An intruder is hiding in the shadows. Somebody unknown is out for Jenny, who desperately has to fight for her life.
Nothing is as it seems in the psychological horror-thriller “Mara,” the first production from Filmkoncept Scandinavia. The company’s basic idea is to produce high quality, cost-effective genre product; high technical craftmanship on small-scale budgets. “Mara” is written, produced and directed by Fredrik Hedberg, Åke Gustafsson and Jacob Kondrup; the founders of Filmkoncept Scandinavia.
