Another Norwegian horror film is arriving later in 2012 and will tell the tale of the “huldra”. Below you’ll find two teasers and a slew of imagery from Aleksander Nordaas’ Thale, which follows a creepy chick with a cow’s tale that appears normal from the front, but will appear “hollowed out” from behind (like a tree trunk).
Here’s what Wiki says about the lore: “In some traditions, the huldra lures men into the forest to have sexual intercourse with her, rewarding those who satisfy her and often killing those who do not. The Norwegian huldra is a lot less bloodthirsty and may simply kidnap a man or lure him into the underworld. She sometimes steals human infants and replaces them with her own ugly huldrebarn (changeling huldre children). In some cases, the intercourse resulted in a child, being presented to the unknowing father. In some cases, she forces him to marry her.”
It sort of sounds like a Norwegian succubus. HOT!
