Synopsis

This Swedish homage to Sam Raimi’s original Evil Dead (1982) is a bloody, scary tale of demonic possession. A group of naive young people find their carefree weekend in an isolated country house unhinged when one of them accidentally unleashes a mysterious and murderous creature trapped in the basement. As the demon begins to attack the couples, the blood-dredged body count mounts and with it, more creatures out for a taste of human flesh, freshly killed. The dazed young men and women soon mount their own desperate counter-attack, an attack that includes decapitations, dismemberment, spurting blood, flailing axes and the kind of gore one does associate with Swedish cinema!

Buzz

“It is a film that far exceeds the sum of its parts with its tremendous amount of atmosphere and ample amount of gore.” – 10,000 Bullets

“Screw the Evil Dead remake” – Cinezilla

Programmer’s Opinion

Ah Sweden. Land of meatballs, easy to assemble furniture, quality automobiles that keep you safer from moose attacks than most other manufacturers, and world class bikini teams. Though it be one of the quieter European countries in the genre cinema scene it nonetheless turns out some quality films. After a certain vampire film killed it on the festival circuit a few years ago all eyes have been on the tiny nation and then comes along Wither, a film totally unlike anything before it from that nation.

Wither wears its influences from the Evil Dead films on its sleeve like a proud Boy Scout would. Except these patches are for achievements in Gore, Dismemberment, Dispatching the Undead, Decapitation… you get the idea. The films creators, The Stockholm Syndrome, are a trio of directors and writers looking to make their bloody mark on international genre cinema and they have achieved that in (and with) spades with Wither. Once heads start rolling it is a fantastic gore-fest that is sure to please a blood-thirsty midnighter crowd. – Andrew Mack
