To 'swede' a film, is simply to take an already made film, and re-make it using anything you can find.
These low-to-no budget films often have some comic aspects to them, due to them making fun of the original.
The term 'sweded' was brought into the mainstream when the film 'Be Kind, Rewind' in which the characters created remakes and rented them at their VHS store, claiming they we're from Sweden, giving them their excuse for long delays and high rental prices.
On the Be Kind Rewind youtube page encourages people to upload their own sweded verisons of films, for example, someone has sweeded the trailer of 'Be Kind Rewind'.
