It has been a very long time since a film has given me chills in the same realm as ‘Se7en,’ but Tomas Alfredson’s ‘The Snowman’ can be felt in the bones.
‘The Snowman’ will be a spectical as the film was shot entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan.
When an elite crime squad’s lead detective investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit, the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.
‘The Snowman’ stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, and J.K. Simmons. Matthew Carnahan, Søren Sveistrup, Peter Straughan, and Hossein Amini worked on the screenplay.
The film is based on the book by Jo Nesbø, and will hit theaters October 19.
