This year, we hosted several visiting filmmakers at Ramaskrik.
Our guest of honor was the esteemed director, writer, podcaster, and all-around great guy—the Master of Horror himself, Mick Garris. He hosted a live episode of Post Mortem and introduced screenings of both Critters 2 and Riding the Bullet. Four members of our audience even had the opportunity to join Mick to watch Chocolat, an episode of the Master of Horror TV series, at our "home cinema screen."
Our opening film this year was There’s Something in the Barn. Director Magnus Martens and writer Aleksander Kirkwood Brown joined us for an introduction and Q&A after the screening.
All the way from the US, we had director Clare Cooney joining us for the Scandinavian premiere of Departing Seniors.
Director Alex Herron and producer-cinematographer Jens Ramborg came to Oppdal for the premiere of Dark Windows.
We also had a very exclusive screening of Troll with director Roar Uthaug and writer Espen Aukan. Roar also joined four members of our audience for an even more exclusive screening of his debut feature, Cold Prey, at our "home cinema screen." Espen hosted an in-conversation with Mick Garris in our foyer.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dark Woods, the film that kickstarted the Norwegian horror wave, director Pål Øie came to introduce a screening of the film on a lovely 35mm print. He also joined four of our audience for a private screening of his film Hidden at our "Home Cinema Screen".
Director Karin Julsrud came to introduce a screening of her debut feature, Bloody Angels from 1998—a Nordic noir-ish thriller that, in many ways, points toward the horror movies Norway started to make 5-10 years later.
