Danish production company Frightgeist announce their first horror film

A new Danish production company that is dedicated to horror film has been launched. The production company Frightgeist is founded by Danish producer/director Søren Juul Petersen and editor/producer Jacob Kondrup.

The first film to be announced by the production company is Finale, which is based on the award-winning novel ‘Alt det hun vill Ønske hun ikke forstod’ by horror novelist Steen Langstrup. The story is set on a night where everyone in the country is watching a big sports final on television. At a small gas station in a remote area of Denmark, two young women are working when they encounter some unique customers.

The film is currently in post production for delivery in July, and was shot in Denmark and Germany with some dialogue in English and German.

The film was mainly financed by the Danish Film Institute and Scanbox Entertainment has the Nordic rights.

Juul Petersen will be making his feature directorial debut after fifteen years of producing.
