Supernatural thrillers from Scandinavia are under the spotlight those days, as the official trailer of Post Mortem is dropped upon Katla‘s successful release.
The popular streaming platform keeps on giving us excellent local productions. As you might recall, Netflix released its Icelandic series Katla back this June. It has been up to a great start so far with many fans and good ratings. Now, we’ll get a new thriller series from Norway, which gives off a similar vibe to Katla. Titled Post Mortem, this new Netflix series will tell of someone who was thought to be dead – only to turn out alive. However, she’s not your regular human anymore.
What is the synopsis of Post Mortem?
Some joggers find a dead body in the wilderness and call the police, who calls the medical service. The health workers take the body to the hospital, only for it to wake up on the autopsy table. Live Hallangen, whom the authorities thought to be dead, is actually alive, but she’s not normal anymore. She lives with some supernatural powers and a constant urge for blood. Meanwhile, her brother is struggling to make things work at their family funeral business in a town where not enough people die. Well, what a coincidence, isn’t it? This girl has an irresistible urge to kill people and drink their blood while her family needs more people to die. Things become complicated at Skarnes, where people wonder whether anybody truly dies there.
“She’s back from the dead and has a newfound thirst for blood. Meanwhile, her family’s funeral parlor desperately needs more business. Hmm, what if…”
We’ll see how things turn out when Netflix releases Post Mortem later this August.
