“Michael Fassbender (X-Men series), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Resurgence) and J.K. Simmons star in The Snowman, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on Jo Nesbø’s global bestseller. When an elite crime squad’s lead detective (Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall. THE SNOWMAN is in Cinemas October 19. www.thesnowman.com.au”
It’s been a while since we’ve had a good old-fashioned serial killer thriller worth watching, and The Snowman – with an immaculate pedigree and an impressive trailer – looks to bring some life back to the sub-genre. With the likes of Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson joining the director of the excellent Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the film promises to be a worth addition to the serial killer canon alongside the likes of Se7en, Zodiac and Silence of the Lambs.
