TrustNordisk taking Icelandic horror around the world

Nordic sales agency TrustNordisk has sold the Icelandic horror film I Remember You (Ég Man Þig) to the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey and Hungary. These deals were secured at the American Film Market earlier this month.

The film is directed by Oskar Thor Axelsson, who we know from 2013’s Black’s Game. This will be the second collaboration between the director and the actors Thor Kristjansson and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, who both appeared in Black’s Game.

In the film, an elderly woman commits suicide, and a psychiatrist discovers the woman’s obsession with the disappearance of the doctor’s son. Across the bay in an abandoned village, three city dwellers restoring the home realise it’s haunted. The two stories intertwine when the discovery of a child who vanished 60 years ago becomes the missing link.

The genre film is produced by Joni Sighvatsson, Thor Sigurjonsson, Skuli Malmquist and Chris Briggs for Zik Zak Filmworks in co-production with Ruben Thirkildsen for Ape & Björn Norway and Maze Pictures in Germany.

The horror feature is currently in production and scheduled for local release on the 7th of April 2017.
