Stellan Skarsgard, Selma Blair, Melissa George, Ashley Walters, Paul Kaye, Tom Hardy / Fiction / English
A stunningly confident urban thriller, from first-time feature director Tom Shankland.
Investigating a string of grisly murders and associated attacks, idealistic rookie detective Helen Westcott identifies a connection with a horrific gang rape case from some years before. But why are Helen's superiors so loth to listen to her reasoning? And what is the meaning of the algebraic formula found at each new crime scene? With excellent performances from Melissa George, Stellan Skarsgård and Selma Blair, this atmospheric and disturbing debut injects the intelligence back into high-concept horror - think Se7en rather than Saw. HM This film is directed by Skillset/EIFF Trailblazer Tom Shankland.
