Tomas Alfredson has an incredible track-record so far, with Let The Right One In and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy already under his belt. Now, he’s back with The Snowman, a crime thriller horror film starring Michael Fassbender, based on the novel of the same name by Jo Nesbø.
The plot of the film is as follows:
“When an elite crime squad’s lead detective 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, 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 stars Michael Fassbender as the lead detective, Rebecca Ferguson as the recruit, and also features J.K. Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, and Val Kilmer in supporting roles.
The film releases wide across the United States on October 20, 2017, but for now you can watch the thrillingly dark trailer and let us know what you think!
