The Trip (Netflix, 2021, D: Tommy Wirkola, S: Noomi Rapace, Aksel Hennie)

Watched this on Netflix hoping for some "Dead Snow" like comedy, action and gore, and... this movie delivers!

Synopsis:

A dysfunctional couple heads to a remote cabin to reconnect, but each has intentions to kill the other. Before they can carry out their plans, unexpected visitors arrive and they faced with a greater danger.


WARNING: Here's the trailer, no spoilers per say, but it gives away some of the funny bits. Probably better to go in blind.

Thought it be a remake of Peter Fonda's '70 flick.

This wasn't bad. Not great but worth a viewing for sure.

I had a lot of fun watching this. The actor playing Lars bore such a strong resemblance to Bill Burr, I found myself imagining it really was Burr playing the role

My lone complaint about the movie
Spoiler:
was not going through with Lars' rape. Getting raped-by-a-prisoner jokes are so hackey, but this one really made me laugh, how it was about Lars willing to let it happen to his wife, but he quickly realize they meant him. I thought it cheapened the movie by the filmmakers going, "Just kidding! We're not as outrageous as we're pretending." I think it should have happened, and even if nothing else in the movie is changed, the audience still has to process that knowledge. It wasn't worth not doing just for the pool balls joke.
