As they take over the […]


We brave the waters of Shark Lake… Lake County has a problem, which is that swimmers, fishermen, hang-gliders, and stupid beach-partying teens keep getting chomped on by some sort of mysterious predator. What could it be? The Sheriff’s Department is convinced that it’s a bear; presumably, it must be some new strain of aquatic bear […]

We take at this absurdist offering from director Anders Thomas Jensen… Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) is a failure when it comes to women, as well a serial masturbator and, well – how to put it nicely? – a moron.
