Don't let this sinister campfire tale pass you by
In this Finnish horror movie, a group of teens decide to go camping by Lake Bodom (scene of one of the most famous unsolved homicide cases in Finnish criminal history) to reconstruct the infamous 1960 murders, but get more than they bargained for when it becomes clear not all of them are there to play. Director Taneli Mustonen toys knowingly with genre conventions to turn in a fresh and smart meta-slasher film that has high production values and some great cinematography. The script has enough plot twists to turn the story on its head several times without things getting confusing, so be sure not to duck out of this sinister campfire tale too early.
