WATCH: Horror Trailer for Netflix’s First Norwegian Original Film Releasing Just in Time for Halloween

On Tuesday, Netflix dropped the trailer for Cadaver, their first original Norwegian film, heading to the streaming platform October 22, 2020. The horror film is set in the aftermath of an unspecified nuclear disaster that leaves survivors with a limited food supply and hurdling towards human extinction.

The film features Leonora (Gitte Witt), Jacob (The 12th Man‘s Thomas Gullestad) and their young daughter Alice (Tuva Olivia Remman) and follows a desperate starving family who finds hope in a charismatic hotel owner who lures them with the promise of a free dinner. The family quickly discovers that they are playing a part in some twisted form of entertainment.

As the hotel owner exclaims, “Everything is part of the play.”
