In the spring of 1984 five teenagers go missing. The disappearances continue for the next twenty-four years but no bodies are ever recovered. Back to the present day and a murderous lunatic goes about the seasonal business of selecting victims whilst four sleazy criminals are planning an audacious kidnap from a nearby estate. One-to-watch first-time director Padraig Reynolds cleverly interweaves both stories until the two collide and all hell breaks loose. Add into the menacing mix the popular current scream team of AJ Bowen (The House of the Devil, Hatchet 2, A Horrible Way to Die) and Anessa Ramsey (Yellowbrickroad, The Signal) and you have a chilling tale of unexpected horror. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: FrightFest.
