The 2005 Swedish fantasy thriller Storm, from co-directors Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein, hits DVD this week via TLA Releasing’s “Danger After Dark” imprint. Starring Eric Ericson, Eva Rose, Lina Englund, Karl Norrhall and Sasha Becker, the film is described as a cross between The Matrix and Nightwatch — a thrill ride with gut-punching action and gory murders, but presumably no Keanu Reeves. Ericson stars as Donny, a slacker whose life takes a terrifying turn when a fiery-haired woman enters his life possessing a box which may hold the answers to the mystery of human existence. Plunged into a harrowing adventure, the pair travel through time and fight off dangerous assassins bent on claiming the mysterious object. But time is quickly running out for Donny, and soon he’s caught up in the battle between good and evil, leaving the very future of mankind in his bloody hands. Housed in a clear Amray case, the DVD comes in 1.85 anamorphic widescreen, with a Dolby 5.1 surround sound Swedish language track with optional English subtitles, as well as an English language dubbed version.
