If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a very nasty surprise…

Three years after a shattering personal tragedy, Elin and Tobias’ marriage is at breaking point. Consumed with unresolved pain and anger, the sparring pair head to the great outdoors for a camping trip in the hopes of salvaging their fractured relationship. But unbeknownst to these unhappy campers, they are not alone in the forest and soon Elin and Tobias find themselves trapped in a nightmarish cycle of torment and degradation from which there appears to be no escape. Delivering on the promise of his extraordinary Sutherland-nominated film The Giant (LFF 2016), director Johannes Nyholm’s uncanny exploration of the devastating and disorienting forces of grief is a mystifying melange of phantasmagorical horror, pitch black comedy and searing psychodrama that, quite simply, has to be seen to be believed.
This is a 18+ screening.
