Geekery: ‘The Snowman’ is a Chiller

Michael Fassbender tries to stop a twisted serial killer from sleighing.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and based on Jo Nesbø’s bestseller.

When an elite crime squad’s lead detective (Michael Fassbender) 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 (Rebecca Ferguson), 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. 

If you’re in need of a break from action filled comic book movies and aren’t into animated features this looks like it’s going to be worth the ticket price, despite the corny title.

The Snowman hits theaters October 20th

    That could be interesting. Michael Fassbender is always value for money.

    “Wind River” looks to be another interesting film set in a chilly environment.

      While I liked that movie I wish it was closer to the actual story rather than the weird fictionalized piece it was. It was a lot more about Jon Ronson’s body of work than Frank Sidebottom’s…

        Nothing can match the towering talent of the titan of Timperley.

          You it can’t. It really can’t.
