Trivia

The subplot about the pedophile ring was invented for the film and not present in the original short story. Perhaps it could be seen as a nod to John Ajvide Lindqvist's earlier novel "Let the Right One In", which included a subplot about pedophiles which was omitted from the film adaptation. See more »

the could become a cult classic
7 August 2018 | by geoffevaSee all my reviews

Nordic folklore is a basis for this noir tale which stays close enough to the mainstream to keep that market fascinated also.

But the theme is more than a little weird and you can't help marvel at the transformation the make up people did to the lead actress.

Although it centres around a Customs officer, the setting is a rather rural port with ferry passengers arriving from (presumably) Finland. She lives in the backwoods, inhabited by wildlife which gets a fair share of the screen time, all well presented.
