Cadaver: Netflix’s latest dive into dystopia

Everything is part of the play in Netflix’s upcoming post-apocalyptic horror. The streaming giant has dropped the trailer for Cadaver, the first Norwegian Original film on the platform. Written and directed by the young and talented director Jarand Herdal, Cadaver will premiere on October 22, globally.

Carrying a cultish aura, the film is set in a dystopian future. In the starving aftermath of a nuclear disaster, a family is seen on the edge of survival. One day, the local hotel invites survivors to attend a theater 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, 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’ hotel.
