I have to admit, as well-read as I am, I had no idea that there was an entire sauna culture in Finland. Apparently it is a no-zone between Christianity and Paganism, where sins can be easily washed away.
There, don’t you feel smarter? I bring this up to highlight a new Finnish horror movie coming from Jade Warrior director AJ Annila called Sauna. Twitch Film got the first look at the theatrical trailer for it, which paints the picture of a very dark horror film brimming with atmosphere.
Here’s an official synopsis: A story of two brothers, who leave a young girl to die and become haunted by her, as she follows them in supernatural form, her face pouring with endless filth. The brothers escape with a commission marking the border between Russia and Finland to a Russian-Orthodox village. In there they find a sauna – The sauna where all sins are washed away. Seeking forgiveness, the brothers step into the sauna…
Sounds suitably freaky for my tastes. We’ll be keeping an eye on it, so be sure to hit the Twitch link above to check out the trailer!
