I gotta say, up until now, the only Persian thing that got me excited was the Soltani dish at Darband’s in LA. But, this flick looks pretty fun. To see a trailer, click here.
Also, a happy birthday to Mr. Gyllenhaal! He turns 29 today.

The synopsis reads:
Jenny (Angelica Jansson) is a young woman with a dark past. During her childhood she witnessed something terrifying that scarred her for life. Now, ten years later years later, Jenny has created a new life of her own.
In the last days of summer, in the deep, dark woods of Sweden, Jenny and four friends gather in a cozy cottage for a weekend of partying, fun and relaxation. This abruptly ends when Jenny wakes up in the morning to find herself alone in the cottage. Thinking that her friends are playing a prank on her she goes searching for them- but they are gone without a trace. Yet, where would they go in the middle of the woods? And why is the car still parked out front? Jenny spends a torturous day waiting for her friends to return.
As darkness once again engulfs the cottage, Jenny must face the fact that she has been left alone. In the darkness. In the middle of nowhere. Or has she? Is she really all alone? No. SomeTHING is out there in the woods. A ghost, perhaps. Or a creature. Or somebody from Jenny’s frightening past. As the night grows darker, shadowy figures haunt the cottage. Unrecognizable voices whisper Jenny’s name. Nightmares come to life. Is Jenny losing her mind? Evil closes in as the story reaches its blood-soaked, twisted conclusion.
