Lorcan Finnegan’s debut feature is a powerful, visually & aurally stunning psychological horror. Worth seeking out for fans of slow burning mystery.
This is a spectacularly creepy Norwegian horror worth letting under your skin.
Got to say, this is an impressive shark movie with some good performances and a load of tension.
