In the remote Westfjords of Iceland, a lady hangs herself inside a church. Her strange death leads to an investigation into a number of similar cases in the region. To his horror Freyr (Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson), the new psychiatrist in town, discovers that the deceased woman was obsessed with the disappearance of his 7-year-old son who went missing without a trace three years before. Across the bay in an abandoned village, three city dwellers are restoring an old house when supernatural and inexplicable events start to occur. It becomes clear that the answer to both of these mysteries lie with the mysterious disappearance of a boy 60 years earlier.

Very Twisted telling of a Ghost Story /Haunting/Murder/Lost Child/Grieving Father/Terrible Accident.
In all it actually came across like a very well made TV Drama than a Movie. BUT ,although slow in the telling it is a Dramatic story and well worth watching to the end. Though I was left dissatisfied with the eventual outcome ,many wont be .Not Everyone gets a Happy Ending .
Sad, Scary, Horrible and Something Finally taking its Revenge .

Brilliant, Spooky, Icelandic Haunted House Horror/Ghost Movie - a Triumph of Chills
- I Remember You review by PV
This is a WONDERFUL movie - Icelandic with loads of barren landscapes, it is at its core a simple haunted house film, with spooky missing children - another horror/ghost movie trope. All atmosphere - not gore, so teens need not bother.
The ONLY thing I didn't like was the confusion of the characters - it used to be that film directors often cast 2 or 3 blonde women who looked almost identical; now they cast 2 or 3 youngish men with hipster beards who look almost identical.
The setting makes this original, and I thoroughly enjoyed it - and jumped and got spooked! WAY better than multi-million budget Hollywood horror fare - for me, anyway. 4.5 stars rounded up.
