A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
In 1988, Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart (Boyd Holbrook), hungry to become a detective, begins tracking a serial killer who mysteriously resurfaces every nine years. But when the killer's crimes begin to defy all scientific explanation, Locke's obsession with finding the truth threatens to destroy his career, his family, and possibly his sanity.Written by
Having not even seen a trailer for this film I was not sure what to expect, all I knew was it was a Sci-Fi film that sounded interesting from the write-up I had read.
I was not disappointed.
While there are one or two "iffy" bits and being only a mid range budget, I can't help wondering what it could have been like if one of the big Hollywood studios had got hold of it and put some big money into it.
Overall it is an entertaining film and well worth a watch.
Please ignore all the critics who are trying to "politicise" this film, it's got nothing to do with politics, it's just a good action Sci-Fi film with a twist that I didn't see coming.
