You may have expected there to be a wave of young adult oriented fantasy film to arise in Sweden following the runaway international success of Let The Right One In
but, surprisingly, there was not. Adaptations of the original author's other novels stalled out and very little popped up in terms of original material or adaptations of other books. But now there's one worth taking a look at with Levan Akin's adaptation of Mats Standberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren's Cerkeln
The first in a series of novels known as the Engelsfors
books - the first two are available in English translations with the third currently available only in Swedish - Cirkeln
revolves around a group of teen girls who discover they are witches and must stand together against an otherworldly threat. The most original premise? Not at all but it's all about character and personality with these things and the novels have proven hugely popular around the globe while the freshly released teaser shows off some very slick work from Akin. Take a look below and if you've read the books let us know what we should be looking forward to!
