Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Norwegian filmmaker Pål Øie directs the horror thriller Villmark (Dark Woods). Shot with digital video on location in Kaupanger, Norway, the film follows the cast of "Real TV" as they're haunted by an evil presence in the wilderness. In order to prepare for a reality show, intense television producer Gunnar (Bjørn Floberg) requires his subjects to spend a week in his secluded cabin. The four characters include best friends Lasse (Kristoffer Joner) and Per (Marko Kanic), along with Swedish Elin (Eva Röse) and new girl Sara (Sampda Sharma). They start to encounter strange things leading up to the discovery of a dead body and the eventual disbanding of their crew. Dark Woods was shown at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival market.
