Haunting suspense
2 October 2020 | by keziah101See all my reviews

The film opens with a bang that immediately grabs your attention. From there, the colours are muted and the suspense builds slowly - one subtle clue at a time. One viewer at the world premiere called Shadowtown "a superb and original movie with a very Icelandic and poetic ambiance." I can't say it any better myself. This is a film I will watch several times, if only to discover what I missed the first time around. The casting is excellent in a film where everyone is more than they seem.
