Directed by Taneli Mustonen
Every camper’s worst nightmare came true at Lake Bodom in 1960 when four teenagers were stabbed to death while sleeping in their tent. As the years passed and the case grew cold, the unsolved mystery turned into an urban legend, a creepy campfire story passed from generation to generation. Now, a group of teenagers arrives at the same campsite, hoping to solve the murder by reconstructing it minute by minute. As night falls, it turns out that not all of them are there to play. Tonight… it’s girls against boys. Let the killing games begin.

★★★★ review by Chris Genro on Letterboxd
A stylish and really well shot slasher/thriller from Finland that has some really incredible moments. The thing that hurts it somewhat is (I'm being vague here) the constant shifts in the story which makes it difficult to engage with our protagonists. The first two acts I was really not that impressed with the film but when we hit that final act that's when things really get going and it really redeemed it for me. There's definitely some of the classic slasher cliches being used here but I think it changes things up enough to really stand out from the crowd. 4/5 stars.

Now thats its streaming on Shudder, hopefully this teens in the woods,( non-cabin) smarter than your average slasher will find an audience!!!
★★★½ review by HuberDG1189 on Letterboxd
An atmospheric and smarter-than-average slasher with hardly any campiness at all, set in the deep, dark Finnish woods.
★★★★ review by Biiirdmaaan on Letterboxd
Fun, twisty little horror film. Keeps the dread high and escalating
★★★½ review by sdrebit on Letterboxd
Don't be scared off by the subtitles - read something for a change, ya bum. And you're going to have to read; even though this gorgeously shot slasher has a lot of moving parts in its pictures, all the twists (and there are many) are in the dialogue, and believe me you'll want to follow along with every engaging turn.
