Exposing Horror in the BUFF Review of “The Unthinkable”
by The Headless Critic
The Unthinkable – 2019
Production by: Crazy Pictures
Distribution by: SF Studios
A strained paternal relationship, a love forlorn, a brilliant musician reminiscent of family, love and the mistakes of life; then there is an explosion in the distance and life is forever changed. The small Swedish village of Vånga is being invaded, but by what or whom, no one knows. As birds fall from the sky, even the rain seems contaminated. It’s a fight for survival against the elements, reuniting with family and fighting for what matters most.
Visually and audibly pleasing with creative cinematography and a score that are original but not an out of place arthouse presentation, Crazy Pictures director Victor Danell brings us an ambitious feature that is a love story at a pending war torn apocalypse. This two hour feature is one half real life love that builds its characters in a scattered timeline setting and one half action in Sweden’s version of Red Dawn. Excellent effects, a relatable story of the heart and an artistic expression that's both pleasing to the eyes and ears. The first half will be too slow for some but stick around for the second half, what a turn.
