film synopsis

Jan Verheyen, the director behind The Verdict (PSIFF 2014), returns Flemish detectives Vincke and Verstuyft to the big screen with another tale adapted from books by crime novelist extraordinaire Jef Geeraerts.

This new adventure tasks them with investigating a series of gruesome murders. But what was once an unconditional friendship comes into question when Verstuyft falls for an attractive New Age healer—an apparent survivor of the killer—and goes rogue. Annoyed by the rebelliousness of his former partner, Vincke, now a departmental commander, brings in a Dutch profiler of serial killers and tries to keep Verstuyft on a short leash. Meanwhile, the serial killer has a new victim in his sights.

This gripping film benefits from gorgeously moody visuals, propulsive editing, and a spooky score. Verheyen expertly ratchets up the tension and unpredictability as both suspects and red herrings accumulate until the very last moment.
