Iceland is becoming a breeding ground for good, eerie horror fare, and the latest example is poised for U.S. theatrical/digital release next month. The trailer and poster have now been unveiled.

IFC Films will bring I REMEMBER YOU, which just played the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms November 10 under the IFC Midnight banner. Óskar Thór Axelsson directed from a script he wrote with Ottó Geir Borg, based on a novel by Yrsa Sigurdardóttir (known as the “Queen of Icelandic Crime”). The synopsis: “An elderly woman hangs herself in a church. A grieving father searches for the truth about what happened to his missing son. And a trio of young city dwellers unleash a sinister force when they begin renovating a cursed home on a remote island. They don’t know it yet, but each of these strangers is connected by a disturbing, decades-old secret—a mystery that holds the key to a series of terrifying supernatural events.”
