Hired by a mysterious organisation, a team of documentary filmmakers - reporter Linn (Signe Elvin-Nowak), camera people Ola (Jonas Lundström) and Yasmin (Isabel Camacho), and soundguy Joakim (Cristian Åsvik) - are to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a woman and her baby in the very woods they took a stroll through every day, and the finding of the woman's corpse 14 days later. The whole case caused a medium scandal in the country because the police seems to have failed to do their duty properly, and apparently the baby was never really looked for. Also, when our documentarians question the woman's fiancé Michael (Johannes Yachouc), they learn several disturbing facts about the case the media never reported about or were barred from reporting. So it's off to the woods for our foursome of filmmakers to look for actual clues, but the first day proves wildly disappointing as not only does the cold get to them, they also find exactly nothing, apart from a weird symbol painted onto a rock - that though really could be anything. Then during the first night when they're camping in the midst of the woods, Joakim goes missing, having taken with him all the sound equipment and the team's cellphones, but apparently he has walked off on bare feet across the frozen ground. Frantically, our heroes go looking for him, but with no clear clue where to go they fail to properly trace Joakim - but instead find the stroller of the missing baby, hanging in a tree. So now they know something sinister's going on. They make it to an abandoned building where they find some shocking photos and videos that more likely than not have to do with their story - but they also have to realize something has followed them there, and that something is completely malevolent ...

 

Now I'm the first to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the found footage approach to filmmaking, and I'll also admit I was not a big fan of the many shaky camera sequences popping up in Reportage November - but in all, this is actually a pretty good movie, as it's based on a well-crafted and carefully structured script that doesn't rely on its filmmaking style too much, and sea-sickness inducing shots aside it's also well-filmed and well-edited, puts an emphasis on atmosphere, and the small ensemble is really solid and relatable, adding urgency to the proceedings. So even if found footage is not your thing, you might want to give this one a try.
