Synopsis

Krister’s existence is on a downward spiral. Still reeling from the death of his wife, he is left to raise a newborn child and an indignant teenage daughter who blames him for all that has come to pass. His mental state is further diminished by reoccurring night terrors, and the vision of a woman who he is beginning to believe may mean him actual harm. It seems the past may truly be back to haunt him.

Buzz

“Looking for something slightly different in the horror film world?  There is no CGI, no gore, and no jumpscares on display here; just a good idea, and complex characters in a dramatically sound horror picture.” – Twitch Film

“Tegstedt develops a sense of mystery and creeping fear that balance the sadness and make MARIANNE an absorbing viewing experience. It’s quite an accomplishment for a first feature, as Tegstedt doesn’t try to impress with stylistic bravura but rather remains devoted to the emotional truths of his characters and story…. It’s a thoughtful and mature film, one possessing a few qualities in common with the Swedish breakout LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, and marks Tegstedt as a talent to watch on the international scare scene.” – Fangoria

“Although probably not recommended for the hardcore gorehounds, the creepy, insightful and effectively melancholy Marianne is a quiet little winner.” – FEARnet

Programmer’s Opinion

The debut feature film of Sweden’s Filip Tegstedt, MARIANNE is a remarkably skillful and mature work that effortlessly interweaves the true heartbreaking tragedy of a family in crisis, with the dread and supernatural chills of Swedish folklore. – Steven Landry
