The Hyperborean

genres:

|

The film takes its time with the characters to get a sense of their dreams, motivations, and fears, particularly as they relate to the future of their father’s whiskey company. The events of that night are presented non-linearly, intercut with the family being grilled by the company’s crisis manager and lawyers. In that way, the first half of the film is like an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, with this film’s Poirot interviewing all of the colorful characters about some grisly murders. In the second half, the murder mystery takes a Lovecraftian horror turn with the discovery of a mummified body in one of the barrels, and later that the body has been invaded by some mysterious alien force.

The Hyperborean slams together ancient myth with cosmic sci-fi horror in that way that you don’t want to miss!
