Directed by Daniel di Grado
When Alena arrives at her elite new boarding school, she immediately becomes the target of bullying from queen bee Filippa and her squad. But Alena has an old best friend named Josefin who won’t let her take any more abuse. If Alena won’t strike back, Josefin will do it for her. But something’s not quite right about Josefin... To say what it is would spoil the many surprises in this gorgeously realized teen terror flick, which belongs in the company of recent Scandinavian horror faves like LET THE RIGHT ONE IN and LAKE BODOM. Based on a graphic novel by Kim W. Andersson, ALENA is also from the director of the upcoming JORDSKOTT Season 2. In Swedish with English Subtitles
When a new girl at an elite private school is mercilessly bullied, her mysterious best friend decides to strike back.
Cast: Helena af Sandeberg, Johan Ehn, Ulrika Ellemark
Definitely an interesting watch, but a little bit too short and disjointed to divine any deeper meaning. Something just felt missing.
Sad and creepy, loved it.
It was really good storytelling, did everything it was set up to be!
I like this movie. More suspense and drama but has a creepy vibe and you are just waiting for something bad to happen. More the horror of insanity and guilt. It seems all my favorite movies are non English speaking movies!
I had a feeling about what was going on throughout the movie, but it kept me watching. It was a sad thriller. I really liked it
