Vidar The Vampire Synopsis
Vidar the Vampire is about a 33 year-old sexually frustrated bachelor farmer named Vidar who leads a monotonous Christian life on his mother’s farm, located on the outskirts of Western Norway. In a desperate attempt to break free of his shackles, Vidar prays to the Lord to grant him a life without boundaries. Instead, he wakes up as the Prince of Darkness! Now he must adjust to life as a vampire.
Vidar The Vampire is comparable in tone to the breakout indie flick, What We Do In The Shadows. The movie stars Thomas Aske Berg, Brigt Skrettingland, Kim Sønderholm, and Henrik Rafaelsen. Fredrik Waldeland and Thomas Aske Berg wrote and directed the film.

This film looks funny as hell! I love quirky, off the wall horror comedies like this. You can never have too many. What a breath of fresh air.
