Spring. Spring så långt benen bär...


Yeah I know, Kickstarter campaigns have definitely reached the point where they're no longer an innovative, fun way to get cool indie projects realised but instead something annoying, that people you went to school with and actually hate pester you with on Facebook. BUT there is one project I'd actually like to see realised and so I'm unashamedly gonna do a little PR for them here on this blog.


 

The project in question is a tv show from Sweden called "Dom jävlarna ska skjutas" which roughly translates to "These devils shall be shot". It's a mix of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "Kick-Ass" and the trailer looks awesome. The version with English subtitles is above.

It's a feminist kind of "Kill Bill" scenario in which a group of women who have all been subjected to sexual violence of some sort fight back and attack rapists. Their leader is a former state attorney who is frustrated with the law and the fact that a lot of rapists get off with little to no charges. The humour of the entire show is extremely dark and very over the top, and it looks like it could be a very cool project if it is realised.

Also - the amazing title song is sung by Seinabo Sey, who is probably the most interesting voice to come out of Sweden in the past few years...

You can (and should) go and donate on Kickstarter here.
