5 Great Swedish Movies You May Have Missed

I know these kind of lists are getting old really fast, but I thought that by narrowing my scope to the cultural output of my own largely irrelevant little country I might find myself with something vaguely original. Despite being a puny little nation with a meager 9,6 million inhabitants we have produced some films that I think people might appreciate, but might not have heard of before now.

So, it occurred to me while rewatching the first Hellraiser film, that a music video made from footage from that movie would make for an excellent Ghost music video. Unfortunately, I’m not particulary good at making music videos, so the result may not be what either Ghost or Hellraiser deserves. But, for what it’s worth, here’s the video anyway.
