Netflix has revealed the first trailer for its first Norwegian film, Cadaver, a psychological horror written and directed by Jarand Herdal that puts humanity to the test.
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 when the local hotel invites survivors to attend a theatre play, with a meal included. However, upon arrival, 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 blurs, until Alice disappears in front of Leo and Jacob, and it’s clear that there is something very wrong at the hotel.
The cast also includes Maria Grazia De Meo as Kathrine, Trine Wiggen as Rakel, Bente Børsum as Vivian, Jonathan Rodriguez as David, Stig Frode Henriksen as Hans and Helge Jordal as The Ticketmaster.
Cadaver premieres 22nd October globally on Netflix.
