Swedish Actress Christina Lindberg achieved her most enduring cult cinema fame with her outstanding performance as Frigga, a much abused and traumatized one-eyed mute, who exacts a harsh retribution on her tormentors in the brutal and controversial revenge opus Thriller – en grym film (1974) banned by the Swedish film censorship board. Watch the trailer below.
Thriller was a groundbreaking Swedish grindhouse film from the early 1970s which rose to notoriety in the 2000s as the primary inspiration for American director Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies. “I love Christina Lindberg,” Tarantino said in 2003. “And that’s definitely who Daryl Hannah’s character is based on. Thriller is, of all the revenge movies I’ve ever seen, that is definitely the roughest. The roughest revenge movie ever made! There’s never been anything as tough as that movie.”
LUGNET is an upcoming Swedish band with the tough, gritty sounds of ’70s hard rock that features well rounded musicians with… touring and recording experience.
The guitar driven attack from Mackan and Bonden delivers crushing riffs and classic rock melodies, that rides on the steady and driving rhythm section of extraordinary bass player Z (Badge) and drummer Jansson (ex. Witchcraft). The lead singer Roger (Ken Hensley) fronts Lugnet with a on-stage swagger, passion & voice reminiscent of the late Ray Gillen (Badlands).
The band name Lugnet means tranquility (the calm) in Swedish and is also the name of the area where the band rehearse their music. But make no mistake this band is out to kill…
