Did You Know?


While researching serial killers for the film, the filmmaker came over an interview with Tommy Lee Sells. Sells claimed he committed his first murder at age 16, and that he killed upwards of 70 people. When he tried to explain what was going on in his head he said it was like his brain was filled with broken glass. "O'Hellige Jul!" wanted to reflect this in the filming and editing style of the scenes where the story follows the killer. The editing in these sections is extremely chaotic, jumping from real life, to how the killer sees the situation, fantasies, to flashbacks. Having jump cuts and pieces that don't really fit together emulating shards of glass. See more »

Per-Ingvar: On my other chair the tyres are made of solid rubber.
Magne: So why didn't you use that one?
Per-Ingvar: I took this one as part of my disguise.
Magne: You don't think people will realise it's you? There are loads of retarded cripples looking like a bean bag with hands, right?
Per-Ingvar: It could have been Sverre Johan.
Magne: You're so fucking stupid you could have been a shortbus all by yourself.
Eline: Knock it off. Let's scare the crap out of somebody. She might be a good...
