Thale Reviews

April 3, 2013
Soon the wealth of exposition is accompanied by the appearance of hoofed CG wilderness she-beasts devoid of any terrifying personality.
May 5, 2013
Hokey CGI; if the budget wasn't enough to make the effects good enough, they should have been left out entirely.
April 15, 2013
Ultimately all wind-up -- a work that dances around a couple moods and genres without ever really wholeheartedly committing to one in particular.

It's too wordy by half, saying what it should be showing -- which is ironic, given helmer Aleksander L. Nordaas' able hand, early on, with unspoken, unseen horrors.
April 5, 2013
Odd hybrid doesn't make the most of its folkloric premise.
April 4, 2013
Thale packs a lot of character and atmosphere into a short running time, making for an entertaining closed-space thriller.

April 5, 2013
There is a great deal of humour in the story; the message that 'man is the real savage' is not fresh but it's well played by the director and his leading men.
June 10, 2013
the unexpected is precisely what is delivered by this low-budget, high-ambition rewriting of local ancient folklore in a modern idiom.
April 6, 2013
When it tries to do something different and dangerous, Thale succeeds. When it goes for the heart, or the hero moment, it winds up being more miss than hit.

April 5, 2013
Solid work from writer/director Aleksander Nordaas, who shapes a beguiling monster movie without ever truly indulging the tropes that often accompany the chaos.

There's none of the usual horror over-emphasis here - it's just observational, matter of fact, and thereby much creepier.
