"Spine-chilling...plays like the bastard offspring of GROUNDHOG DAY and THE BABADOOK."—Keith Uhlich, The Hollywood Reporter

"**** Nyholm's greatest triumph in KOKO-DI KOKO-DA lies in the way he drives home his story's emotional weight through particularly cinematic means."—Sucheta Chakraborty, CineVue

A happy family vacation at a kitschy resort that ends badly. Another vacation, three years later, shadowed by the emotional fallout of the previous one. A trio of grotesque sadists who evoke fairy-tale monsters and an old-time vaudeville act. A ferocious dog. A white cat. A catchy, sinister song. A silhouetted puppet show. A smorgasbord of alternative outcomes à la GROUNDHOG DAY and RUN LOLA RUN. These are the ingredients of KOKO-DI KOKO-DA's ingenious, puzzle-like structure. Discovering how the pieces come together is essential to the impact of this offbeat psychological horror film with a haunting emotional payoff. In Swedish and Danish with English subtitles.
