What if you had to relive the same nightmare over and over again?...
...Dark Star Pictures has set a date for a limited theatrical run of Groundhog Day-esque horror flick Koko-di Koko-da from director Johannes Nyholm (The Giant)! Our Amylou Ahava absolutely loved this film, calling it a "nightmarish fairy-tale" (you can read her review here).
In Koko-di Koko-da:
"Elin and Tobias are a happily married couple who regularly vacation with their young daughter. The family is on a dreamy holiday when an innocuous case of food poisoning derails their plans and forever alters the course of their lives. Three years later, the once loving couple is on the road again to go camping, looking for one last chance to go back to the way things used to be. But what once was is lost, and our characters instead find themselves having to relive the same nightmarish events, as that day and the horrors it brings repeat themselves infinitely. Together, they must overcome their trauma, reconcile with their past and fight for their lives. Over, and over, and over again."
The film stars Peter Belli, Leif Edlund, Ylva Gallon, Katarina Jackobson and Brandy Litmanen.
