Dark Woods

Synopsis: The crew of the TV show "Real TV" with controlling boss Gunnar on the front line will soon begin production of a reality show for which participants are selected to survive in the wilderness. Gunnar has gathered a production team of four people: The friends Lasse and Per , the Swedish girl Elin and the new girl Sara. To test his new employees, Gunnar takes them to a log cabin where he used to spend summers as a kid. The cabin is located far away from civilisation, hidden in the dark, mysterious woods. The team has to make it through a weekend, finding food that nature has to offer, and neither cellular phones nor cigarettes are allowed. When Lasse and Per find a dead body in a lake near the cottage, the group is being tested. Gunnar is suggesting that they should continue the weekend without mentioning anything to Sara and Elin about what they found. But soon the team experiences some escalating incidents which lead to paranoia, accusations and mistrust.

You wanna play with me?

Come on, Lasse!

-Check this out.

-You look lovely.

This doesn't work.

I'll fix it later.

Where did you get that?

We got it

from some helpful German tourists.

We found it in a tent by the pond.

Put it back.

-What's the matter?

-You stole someone else's food.

That tent has been deserted

for over a month.

We are supposed to behave

like adults. You've already failed.

A German plane crashed here

during the war.

Grandpa said

this pond never froze in the winter.

And we were never

allowed to swim here.


Now what?

Let me see.

Holy shit ...

We have to get back to the car

before dark.

Another day or two

makes no difference to her.


We have to report this.

We'll wait

until we head down on Sunday.


-Stop kidding.

Four days

makes no difference to her.

-What about her family?

-She'll be just as dead on Sunday.

-Have you completely lost focus?

-Let me handle this. Please.

Sunday is a good day.

Church is open ...

If you find a body,

you contact the police. Period.

What's going on in your head?

We can't leave her another four days.

-Calm down, Lasse.

-Shut up!

We'll report it when we get home.

On Sunday.

I'm leaving.

Home is the other direction, Lasse.

Get a grip, Lasse.

This stays between us.

There's no point

in frightening the girls.

I've never seen a dead body before.

Have you?


Where's Lasse?


Didn't Lasse go with you?


But he needed some more fresh air.

Will you come with me

to the outhouse, Elin?


-Are you scared?

-Come inside with me.

-Want me to wipe you too?

-I'll wait till we get home.

-Sit down and close your eyes.

-What does this have to do with TV?

-Don't ask me.




That wasn't funny, Lasse.
