“Why are all you boys so obsessed with murder?”

55 years after some nasty murders at Lake Bodom, 4 teenagers decides to do some camping. The trip soon turns into a nightmare, and it’s difficult to escape from nasty killings in the vast forests of Finland.

Now this is a well made, well played feature. It takes a dramatic and somehow unexpected turn midways, and I was expecting something really cool and creative. Sadly I was wrong! The story and the plot could’ve been much, much better. Anyway… It’s an atmospheric backwoods slasher with pace and flair. Well worth a watch!
