JOHAN BROMANDER

DIRECTOR & SCRIPTWRITER

Directors, and writing team, Bonita Drake from England, and Johan Bromander from Sweden, met and fell in love in the University of Wales while studying Film & Video in the late nineties. They got their film degree, got married, had their daughter Josephine made a lot of shorts (not necessarily in that order) and have now embarked on their carriers as feature film directors. Both Bonita and Johan are focussed on comedies in all genres – and they really have the talent for it – there are more funny stories heading out of that writing den for sure.

REVIEWS

…the goofy AMERICAN BURGER may be just what you ordered if you’re in the mood for fast food horror.

From the reckless abandon with which the kills are performed to the maniacal joy exhibited by the Butcher, AMERICAN BURGER is a cult film in the making and should not be missed by those who don’t take their horror too seriously. AMERICAN BURGER was an absolute blast to watch, and is bound to please fans of foreign depictions of American culture, 80s high school flicks, and horror comedies.

Cheerleaders & Cannibalism Together At Last: American Burger Review

“American Burger is the most ridiculously absurd movie you’re likely to see this year. It’s also quite ridiculously awesome!”
“In the same vein as horror comedy classics such as Paul Baretl’s Eating Raoul or Jackie Kong’s Blood Diner, this film simmers in its ridiculousness. It celebrates every minute of it. By the end of the movie you’ll surely be shouting at the top of you lungs, U.S.A. we’re number one, WE’RE NUMBER ONE! Whether you’re from there or not.”

Svensk skräck på bioduken

“American Burger skojar med filmer som Motorsågsmassakern och Hostel på ett sätt som ligger närmare Monty Python och Comic Strip än olidliga Scary Movie-varianter. Det svensk-brittisk-amerikanska skådespelarteamet toppas av Fredrik Hillers Demented Butcher, fabrikens stolte chefsslaktare. När Hiller släpper loss i en silly walk och en amerikansk patriotisk sång framförd med en alldeles egenartad brytning, blir det årets oförglömligaste svenska rollprestation för mig i alla fall.”

“The location choice and cinematography holds up against some of the best films this year in any genre. The heavily wooded areas are a luscious green and make for some wonderful backdrops. The music and score as I mentioned earlier were fantastic. It cuts between a score that is very American and patriotic and the next it’s like an Action/Thriller chase film. I enjoyed the fact that the characters don’t really have names that was a nice touch.”

“..när “American Burger” är som bäst är när den är som mest campy. Fredrik Hiller får mest spelutrymme som ovan nämnde skruvade köksmästare, Leatherface och Borat i samma person. Om Barnkanalen sände en opassande skräckspecial skulle han passa fint, så som han spottar fram svordomar och spelar över med stolthet. Annars hejar jag faktiskt på nördarna hela vägen..”

Alexander DunerforsChefredaktörMovieZine

“It satisfied this Scribbler so…B-Happy!! ** But don’t eat an American Burger, it has a funny after taste!”
