Storyline

Sacrifice is the story of consultant surgeon, Tora Hamilton, who moves with her husband, Duncan, to the remote Shetland Islands, 100 miles off the north-east coast of Scotland. Deep in the peat soil around her new home, Tora discovers the body of a young woman with rune marks carved into her skin and a gaping hole where her heart once beat. Ignoring warnings to leave well alone, Tora uncovers terrifying links to a legend that might never have been confined to the pages of the story-books.

Goofs

It would have been easy for the medical examiner to notice the corpse discovered in the peat was that of a nursing mother. Peat bogs preserve fats, in fact ancient cultures would preserve butter by placing it in a animal bladder and sinking it in a bog. This would preserve the fats of the butter indefinitely. "Bog butter" preserved in the ancient past is still edible today. A nursing mother would have had deposits of bog butter and a substance called "grave wax" in the tissues of her breasts, and most likely in her hips and thighs as nursing mothers tend to accumulate fat reserves more so than other women. Easily noticeable in even the most cursory medical inquest. See more »

Worth to see it
30 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm not really a fan of thriller movies in which legends and cults are used for a plot. Because most are quite predictable and so it is Sacrifice. Thus, after reading a storyline at IMDb, I kinda knew what to expect.

I admit, main reason for watching this movie anyway, was Radha Mitchell. I just think, over the years, she's getting better and better. I can't judge her acting, but one is for sure: she leaves a mark in a movie.

So, even nothing really surprised me during watching Sacrifice, it got my attention all the time -it's something that makes a good movie in my eyes.

Thus, if you like such genre, I recommend seeing this movie. I give it 7 stars.
