Description

Atte is a Finnish high-schooler with an obsession: the 1960 Lake Bodom murders, in which four teenagers were stabbed and bludgeoned, three to death. With his friend, Elias, Atte decides to head to the notorious lake to reconstruct the murders for a photo project. They invite a pair of girls to join them, quiet Ida and her outgoing friend Nora, though the boys keep their motives a secret, hoping instead that the surprise will generate more realistic photos.

Darkness falls, and what began as a simple camping trip suddenly becomes dangerous, as director Taneli Mustonen toys with your expectations, taking the audience out of teen slasher territory, and into the Hitchcockian realm of double-cross and mounting suspense, as motivations blur and protagonist becomes antagonist and back again. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely for people hungry for an intelligent slasher.
