‘Koko-di Koko-da’ Trailer: Bizarre Sundance Horror Features A Very Creepy Children’s Song

I must confess to not remembering Koko-di Koko-da when it played at last year’s Sundance. There are only so many hours in the day and far too many offbeat horrors to choose from. But perhaps I should’ve paid more attention because this looks like the kind of film that could make camping terrifying again.

If you’re wondering about the unusual title, the trailer answers that question throughout, as a grieving married couple is stalked by a bizarre stranger singing a creepy children’s song. To make matters worse, the couple is camping for the first time since a prior tragedy, only to find themselves reliving the same nightmare.

The film is directed and written by Johannes Nyholm, with Danish singer Peter Belli putting his voice to frightening effect.

Koko-di Koko-da opens on March 27th.

SYNOPSIS: Elin and Tobias are a happily married couple who regularly vacation with their young daughter. The family is on a dreamy holiday when an innocuous case of food poisoning derails their plans and forever alters the course of their lives. Three years later, the once loving couple is on the road again to go camping, looking for one last chance to go back to the way things used to be. But what once was is lost, and our characters instead find themselves having to relive the same nightmarish events, as that day and the horrors it brings repeat themselves infinitely. Together, they must overcome their trauma, reconcile with their past and fight for their lives. Over, and over, and over again.
