Over the weekend I got to catch a couple of monster movies. The one that stood out was Frostbitten, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454457/, a dandy little vampire flick from Sweden. Yes, Sweden, which means that A. It is subtitled, B. Everything looks vaguely like it came from Ikea.
The movie revolves around a doctor with a stash of red pills that turn the user into vampires. And apparently it is totally cool amongst Scandinavian teenagers to take random unknown drugs to see what happens. (must be from the socialized medicine). They pills get passed around at a party, and hilarity ensues.
Monster movie fans should catch this one. There are some good performances as various people turn into vampires, talking dogs, and assault and battery with garden gnomes. Which leads to my favorite lines of the whole flick, “Quit hitting me with gnomes!”
It drags in places, and nothing really resolves, but I’ll recommend anything where somebody eats a poodle, bonus points if it is still on the owner’s leash.
