icelandic horror movie fan.
During the 00s (it still doesn’t sound as natural as ‘the 80s’) there was a trend in horror filmmaking. A trend that was more horrifying than anything in the film, but it was on the screen, nonetheless. It was a filter—kind of like you can put on your photos before posting them on Instagram. Everything was desaturated (colors made less apparent) by about 40%, then the contrast (the difference between light and dark) was put up about 200% and then…
As an Icelandic person, I must point out that you don't have to travel by horse over mountains to get to any villages here (also, Batman, a horse? you're Batman not Lucky Luke, use a batsnowplower or something). No villages are managed in pubs nor rely on superhuman aqua based superheroes for food and at no point will Icelandic people start to sing "Vísur Vatnsenda-Rósu" in unison at you like they do here.
The Icelandic they spoke was correct, though.
Also, this movie did not need to be 4 hours.
