Young Michael (Linus Karlgren) is a disgrace to his religious family as
he's addicted to porn and baked beans, has no ambitions whatsoever and
doesn't seem to get anywhere in life. And then somebody is assassinated
next to him without him even noticing, but blood and human remains of the
victim spill into his chips - and he really likes them that way.
enough, Michael finds more and more open fleshwounds on his leg, and the
pain becomes more and more unbearable - and yet, Michael has no idea how
he got them ... until his sex interest Lotta (Ida Karolin Johansson)
witnesses Michael tearing flesh out of his own leg and eating it. She's
shocked and pulls a knife on the obviously cannibalistic Michael - but in
the struggle that ensues, she eventually gets killed.
Not knowing what
to do, Michael calls Albin (Malte Aronsson), a food blogger with
cannibalistic tendencies, and Albin doesn't only tell Michael how to treat
the body for feeding purposes, but also takes him under his wing for
future endeavours - and that's where things really get out of hand ...

Now Cannibal Fog is most certainly not a movie
that goes with a weak stomach, and it's not so much for what it does show
(for a cannibal flick this one's by no means very bloody) but what it
suggests - and maybe even more so how it suggests it, as this is a mix of
horror, dark comedy and biting social satire that often quite cleverly
wraps its most gruesome bits in jokes and combines its mean-spiritness
with empathy, to a point where one's really rooting for the cannibals ...
