    Cadaver — Netflix Film

    Cadaver is a Norwegian psychological horror film that takes us on a journey where humanity is being put to a test; it stars, among others, Gitte Witt, Thorbjørn Harr, Thomas Gullestad, and Kingsford Siayor. In the starving aftermath of a nuclear disaster, Leonora (Gitte Witt), Jacob (Thomas Gullestad), and their daughter, Alice (Tuva Olivia Remman), are on the edge of survival. One day, the local hotel invites survivors to attend a play, with a meal included, as a charitable effort to help those in need. Left with no choice, the family of three decide to go to the hotel, where the director, Mathias (Thorbjørn Harr), introduces the entire hotel as the stage. Attendees are given masks to help separate them from actors, but the play takes an eerie turn when audience members start to disappear. The line between reality and theater quickly gets blurred, until Alice disappears in front of Leo and Jacob, and there’s no longer room for doubt: Something is very wrong with Mathias’s hotel.
