Rayburn Swanson is an alcoholic who spends his days drinking and patroling his Gwen Swanson Sanctuary named after his "missing daughter." He goes to see Sheriff Alice Gustafson when a body is found floating down a local river. Not his daughter but Swanson finds that the girl has a mysterious wound on her throat. Swanson also has a state of the art camera system where he can watch from the cabin different areas of his sanctuary. and he sees some bizarre activity. A figure dressed in a shaggy tree camouflage outfit is chasing a young girl. Swanson is attacked by the disguised bushy person but ends up finding the girl. Back at his cabin both he and the girl are attacked by the same figure. The first plot twist happens here. The sheriff has some secrets of her own. The hunt is now turned toward the sheriff's odd brother who hides out on the neighboring Indian Reservation. Swanson is wounded and ends up seeking off the grid medical treatment from the doctor who works at the reservation. So it should end here but there is a second great plot twist that sets Swanson toward the real killer and the "whys" fall into place.
This is better than I ever expected. The foggy chases through the sanctuary where the killer hunts his prey are excellent. The use of the video cameras to watch the sanctuary and even the nearly invisible killer who can blend in adds to the suspense. I liked it. I give it 4 STARS~ NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU as Swanson was excellent. The flawed hero. ANNABELLE WALLIS as Gustafson was good but her focus on her psycho brother detracted from the story. Good plot and acting and excellent casting. Added bonus we see Reservation Police and Local Law function in the search for a murderer.
Story: Drunk guy with nice dog and big problems gives up drinking to solve big problems. Drunk guy has ex-wife. They broke up because their kid disappeared. Contains obligatory scene at dumpy strip club. Plus, there are two scary basement scenes. Wow. Who would have thought to put a drunk guy, a dog, a strip club, and a scary basement all in the same movie?
After the final episodes of Game of Thrones, you thought Coster-Waldau coudn't sink any lower. You were wrong.
I was pleasantly surprised that this movie, not only kept my attention but was suspenseful.
I was afraid this would be a low budget attempt, but it is very well done. The story was decently written, although more background about Rayburn Swanson would have been nice. The Canadian backdrop is stunningly beautiful and nearly every role was well portrayed (except Annabelle Wallis, she is so DRY, I feel like she is emotionless in every role she plays.) Zahn McClarnon was a great cast, as was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Both give credibility to their roles, not just some pretty faces. Is it an Oscar contender, no, but is it a good watch, absolutely. I would recommend it. A welcome distraction during pandemic.
NCW plays his character very consistently throughout and helps drive the pacing of the movie forward even better with yet another believable acting job where you forget you're watching a movie (when he is on screen). Reminiscent of his role in Headhunters
Definitely worth a rental
