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.

That was strange, freudian, disturbing, and amazing. horror doesn't always mean jumpscares.

A weird trip! Somehow very Lynchian in a great way and other times very goofy in kind of a cringeworthy way. The green butter really incites a great level of visceral disgust. Always like a good folk horror.
