Trivia: Frostbite


  • Shrug of God: StarSword commented in the author's notes that the Samus Is a Girl moment with Dalsh Ruul came out of him blending the novelverse interpretation of the Breen as a multi-species alliance with a bit of the Tau Empire from Warhammer 40,000.
    StarSword: So maybe Ruul is a human defector, or maybe she’s from a far-flung colony world that the Breen took over, or which joined voluntarily. In any case, now she is not human, she is Breen.


  • Enforced Method Acting: This film had in no ways the money to shot the outdoor scenes in a studio with fake snow. It was actually shot in the northern part of Sweden during winter, but not during the polar night against the director's wishes. It was so cold that actress Grete Havnesköld, who played Saga, started to cry, the actors playing the vampires had to walk around covered in blood during freezing rain, said freezing rain created a layer of "ice armor" of all of the film equipment and the cold caused the cameras to break down.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Half the cast. The other half were unknown and Petra Nielsen, the only star.
    • Swedish comedian Mikael Torving plays a cop. He later got cast as a police in a cop-show.

    • Comedian Anders Johansson voices a dog.
    • Linn Bülow, Isidor Torkar & Carl-Åke Eriksson from Mysteriet Pa Greveholm appears.
    • Nour El-Refai as Sebastian's girlfriend.
  • Playing Against Type: Frostbite is the one Swedish film with a target audience above 12 that does not take a turn to be dark and depressing but rather cheerfully shows all the teens meeting either brutal death at the hands of the unholy demons or losing their immortal souls becoming said demons.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, writer Daniel Ojanlatva intended the three storylines in the film to play out separately rather than intercut between each other. That way no one would understand fully the evil plot of the villain until the very end of the film.
