AMC’s streaming service picks up Lake Bodom

AMC Networks’ genre streaming service, Shudder, has picked up U.S, Canadian and U.K rights to the Finnish slasher film Lake Bodom ahead of its SXSW premiere next month.

The film, which is inspired by true events, follows four teenagers on a pilgrimage to Lake Bodom, the site of a brutal killing of a group of teenagers in the 1960s. As with all horror films, they quickly find themselves repeating history. The film is written and directed by Taneli Mustonen.

Lake Bodom will start streaming in May.

We feature Lake Bodom in our ‘recommended films’ in the March issue of Cinema Scandinavia, which you can preorder here.
