A murderous, feel-good Norwegian splatter comedy about a couple spending a relaxing weekend at their summer house.
They both fully intend on murdering the other.
The husband goes for the kill, but the wife gets the upper hand.
Then there's a reversal. You know this will happen, because you know the movie is not 15 minutes long.
You also know neither of the couple can die until the end, so they'll have to introduce a bunch of side characters to die violently.
A trio of murderers show up, which is extremely convenient for the plot.
The murderers get the upper hand.
The murderers introduce dumb poop jokes, and there's serious risk of losing the plot.
But the filmmakers suddenly remember why we're here, and everyone gets murdered violently.
When I describe something as a silly, light-hearted, slapstick, feel-good horror rom-com, I would typically mean that in the most negative way possible. But, in this case, I mean it in the most neutral way possible.
It's pretty well acted, it's very well shot, it's legitimately funny at times, and it's ever-so-Scandinavian. But the cartoony back-and-forth fighting does drag on. Remember On Evil Grounds (2007)? This is what it would have been like, had it not been completely awful.
