Is the legend of the Fjord Witch just a superstition? Or does the bride of Satan actually reside in the woods outside the small Norwegian village of Grytefjord? Tordenskjold Wagle has gone out looking for the infamous witch, and has not been seen or heard from since. Worried about losing his son to the bride of Satan, his father Kurt Josef assembles a team of the best and most fearless witch hunters in town (who, incidentally, also happen to be the only witch hunters in town).
Tommy Wirkola first made a name for himself with the Kill Bill-parody film Kill Buljo (2007), which garnered international attention, despite being a highly provincial affair. Since then, he has made an international name for himself with the nazi zombie splatter comedy Dead Snow (2009), which in turn has led to his first Hollywood work; the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters which is expected to premiere in 2012. In Kurt Josef Wagle and the Legend of the Fjord Witch, Wirkola turns to the mockumentary horror genre made popular by films such as The Blair Witch Project (1999) and the Paranormal Activity series. Kurt Josef Wagle is a highly entertaining trip through backwater Norwegian woods - not to mention the first mock mockumentary in Norwegian cinema history to feature scratch'n'sniff action cards.
