A supernatural policemovie that keeps the audience at the edge of their seats
23 October 2016 | by sth01See all my reviews

A Swedish policeaction-movie with supernatural elements. Does that sound like a good mix? Do you think twice about watching it? Don't miss this one, because this movie really delivers!

This is Rasmus Tirzitis directorial debut. His earlier work is a Star Wars fan-movie called "Threads of Destiny" Check it out on YouTube.

Vilsen (international title: "Ave Mater") contains what you'd expect... really scary scenes, action and we get to learn more about detective Lidmans personal life and the collaboration with his policepartner Nordström.

The pastor Gabriella (played superbly by Alexandra Zetterberg) does a really good job in her role.

The script is very well written and covers the story excitingly from start to the explosive finale.

You'd better not miss this one. And keep a look out for the upcoming works from Rasmus Tirzitis in the future.
