Based on three Swedish films about kids...

...I wouldn't recommend raising children there. I mean, it seems like when it's good, it's good. But when it's bad, it's traumatizing and bizarre.

1. Fanny and Alexander (1982)

You may have a fancy Christmas party with your large family:

But your step-dad is a puritanical creeper:

2. My Life as a Dog (1985)

You may get to spend your free time with a buxom lady who forgives you for peaking at her nakedness through a glass ceiling in the roof when you fall through it:

But your mom is suffering a long and painful death:

2. Let the Right One in (2008)

And while you may find a kindred spirit while wearing cozy sweaters:

That kindred spirit may also be a vampire who has this done for h(er?)im so (s?)he can eat:


  1. Let the Right One In is SO BORING. I'm pretty sure the vampire is a girl. The only scene worth watching is the cat attack.

  2. Mmm, deliciousness....I mean that in regards to the post, not in regards to drinking blood. I really liked Fanny and Alexander, the happy Christmas part is so nice at the beginning.
