Trailer Unleashed For Norwegian Horror Comedy VIDAR THE VAMPIRE





The trailer has been revealed for Vidar the Vampire, a Norwegian ultra low budget horror-comedy produced by UFOh! The film is set to premiere at The Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund on August 23rd, 2017 and will screen at both Fantasy Filmfest, Germany and FilmQuest, USA in September, 2017.

The film is self-financed with a budet totalling approximately $60,000.

The making of Vidar the Vampire has been an entirely organic process from beginning to end, both by choice and necessity. Thomas Aske Berg & Fredrik Waldeland started writing the script in 2012, shot and edited a pilot in 2013, went back to the drawing board and rewrote the script over and over from 2013 to 2015. The rest of the film was shot on and off from 2015 through 2016, while continuously making changes in the script based on the footage acquired. This on-and-off process of filmmaking was necessary due to seasonal based scenes and the fact that the core crew members were reliant on side jobs to be able to support themselves.

Vidar the Vampire
follows typical genre conventions but with an energetic twist and innovation.

Vidar Haarr is a 33 year old, sexually frustrated bachelor farmer who leads a Christian, monotonous and strenuous working life on his mother’s farmstead in the Western outskirts of Norway. In a desperate attempt to break free from routine, Vidar prays to a higher power to grant him a life without boundaries. Unfortunately, his prayers are heard and Vidar wakes up one evening as the Prince of Darkness in sin city, Stavanger.
