ESP’s resident film critic Gavin Miller grabs the popcorn and settles on the sofa to check out the latest small screen release on Netflix…

This Swedish-language thriller was trending high in Netflix’s Top Ten in the past week – so it sounded like it was worth seeing what all the fuss was about.

Sadly the (just about passable) English-dubbed couple-being-hunted in the Swedish wilderness – initially with laser cross-hairs being directed at them through their tent from a faraway armed assailant – isn’t as clever as it thinks it is.

But their romantic break turns into a nightmare when it soon becomes clear that someone is tracking them in the darkness intent on harming the couple – and playing anxiety-busting ‘mind games’ to boot.

And for that it’s worth a long shot if you’re into this sort of thing – even though it doesn’t offer anything we haven’t really seen before.

The only real difference is that it’s Swedish…
