SWEDISH HORROR-THRILLER „MARA“ TO BE RELEASED IN NORTH AMERICA

Mara Box (SWEDISH RELEASE) „Chillingly atmospheric, MARA’s icy grip will send shivers down your spine from first frame to last.“
Jim Wynorski, legendary independent filmmaker (“Chopping Mall,” “The Return of Swamp Thing,” “Piranhaconda”), after watching “Mara”

Filmkoncept Scandinavia is proud to announce that the Swedish horror-thriller “Mara” will premiere on DVD and VOD in the U.S. and Canada during spring 2013. “Mara” is to be distributed by MVD Entertainment Group, a prominent distributor of independent films, documentaries, music and educational DVDs and serving major chains, online retailers, one-stops and independent retailers.

First up, “Mara” is out on DVD and VOD on its domestic market Sweden from Njutafilms on January 16. Among the bonus features on the domestic release are a Making Of featurette and interviews with star Angelica Jansson. This material is expected to be ported over to the North American release.

“Mara” is Swedish glamour model Angelica Jansson’s feature film debut. Angelica has appeared in magazines such as Moore (Sweden), Slitz (Sweden), Playboy (USA) and Sunday Sports (UK). In “Mara,” Angelica plays Jenny, who as a little girl witnessed a brutal act of violence in her home, a murder that scarred her for life. Trying to process her childhood trauma, Jenny returns to the scene of the crime as an adult. Along with a couple of friends she intends to relax and enjoy herself during a weekend in this gloomy, secluded house in the middle of the woods. However, the stay turns into a trip to Hell when it turns out there’s an intruder in the house. A shadow from the past. Somebody out for blood. Jenny finds herself stuck in a nightmare without end.

The low-key, psychological chiller “Mara” is the first feature from Filmkoncept Scandinavia and is written, produced and directed by Fredrik Hedberg, Jacob Kondrup and Åke Gustafsson.

“Mara” uses a deliberately slow building style and plot twists, were nothing is what it

seems, is partly inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.” Hitchcock aside, the gloomy feel and moody look of the film draws on more contemporary inspiration from the likes of John Carpenter and others. The movie was shot on location near Kristianstad, southern Sweden.
