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.

When Tora steals the boat and lands on the island, she leaves it far up on shore several feet from the water. If it had been a small boat, she possibly could have dragged it there, but it was much larger-- the size of a ski boat or patrol boat, much too large for one woman to drag across dry ground.

Initially showed potential., but ultimately fails to deliver the goods.😴
4 October 2016 | by matthewcollins-76772See all my reviews

Potential, and intrigue out of the gate, with nice location filming, panoramic vistas, and seascapes, but than, about 45 minutes in., it dawns on me, everything I liked, turns into a repetitive, derivative, skip in the record mess, and snooze. This is my first review on IMDb., one of the best web sites, I know of, for film buffs, and hope I am allowed to say IMDb...a treasure trove, which I rate a 10. I am required ten lines of text, which does not make since to me, because, I really don't have much more to say about the film., except, you may like Exreme Measures, Proxy, or Robin Cooks, Coma, better. I tried to write a review on NF., but I did not want to be the first one. So I had a general feeling of lethargy, and sedation, after watching this movie, and say again, it was aesthetically pleasing, for photography, and scenery., but the script, and story fizzled., and for me, the movie, as a whole, was a dud. Next please.
