Tilbury

Tilbury

Directed by Viðar Víkingsson

Based on the short story by Thorarinn Eldjarn, this made-for-TV film mines the Icelandic lore of the Tilbury, a beast who could be summoned by women in times of financial hardship and starvation. But the gifts of the Tilbury come with their own brand of destruction. Set in 1940 during the British occupation, a country boy discovers his childhood sweetheart is having an affair with a British soldier, an ugly, impish man who spontaneously vomits green butter. Hearing the tale of the “tilberi,” he comes to suspect that this ostentatious soldier could be one of the evil creatures.

Step into another time, another world where merry military tunes fill the air with inspiring hope while horrific entities dwell in transfigured fantasies and love... love never dies.

Agreed with the first review. It has a eclectic, eerie and even a slightly fatalistic tone overall. Didn't mind the brief running time. Goes to show that not all made for TV fare is alike, e including anything to do with horror tinged folklore.
