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

When the crime scene investigator is examining the remains uncovered in the horse paddock, he says that her body is tanned from the peat but her bone structure indicates she's Caucasian. This is chemically impossible. Exposure to the anaerobic bog would preserve her body, and the peat would most definitely tan her skin, yet the acid in the peat (a pH near to vinegar) would also dissolve the calcium phosphate of her bones. Her bone structure would melt into a blobby mess, and her body would have the shape of discarded clothes or a shed snakeskin. And the body itself, once uncovered and exposed to the elements, would decay rapidly--making any postmortem inquest very imprecise. See more »

More drama than film but very good nonetheless
23 May 2016 | by beccabentleySee all my reviews

This very much reminded me of the British crime series Silent Witness. Had the same feel to it. Also had a slightly "Wicker Man" feel to it. The characters were strong and though the story was a little far fetched it remained believable and convincing. It isn't a cinema quality film and certainly doesn't have special effects or big budget action scenes but the acting is good and the sense of malevolence and mystery compelling. It is worth watching and it kept my interest throughout. I liked the twists and turns, the scenery was beautiful and wild and created a dramatic backdrop to the story. I felt it was a pity this wasn't a pilot episode of a series as I would have carried on watching!
