Swedish writer/director Johannes Nyholm's Koko-Di Koko-Da is a blackly comic slice of folk-horror that revolves around a couple (Leif Edlund Johansson and Ylva Gallon) who embark on a trip to the backwoods in hopes of repairing their ailing relationship. Things take a nightmarish, surreal turn when a sinister sideshow artist (Peter Belli) subjects them to a Groundhog Day style repeating loop, forcing them to relive one specific moment from their lives.

Speaking of the inspiration for his film, Nyholm says "The setting is those wee hours of the morning when dreams are at their most relentlessly untamed. This is also when the seed for many of my films comes to me… this nightmarish landscape between wakefulness and sleep. The film is deeply personal and a means to confront my own worst fears, much like the way the characters in the film are forced to confront theirs. The main reason for making this film is that I’m fascinated by the everyday situations and power struggles lurking beneath the surface in relationships; what is not said, what is embedded between the lines."

Koko-Di Koko-Da is in UK/ROI cinemas March 27th.

Check out the new UK trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

A couple, Tobias (Leif Edlund Johansson) and Elin (Ylva Gallon), embark on a trip to find their way back to each other and repair their broken relationship. A sideshow artist (Peter Belli) and his shady entourage emerge from the woods, terrorizing them, luring them deeper and deeper into a maelstrom of psychological terror and humiliating slapstick. Desperately the couple tries to escape, only to find themselves back where they started: in their tent, waking up at dawn. By way of their tangled dreams, we relive one particular night in their lives over and over again.  From this nightmarish atmosphere, underpinned by a haunting score and striking cinematography, a poignant story emerges about relationships, grief and reconciliation, and love as a healing force.
