There's something infinitely intriguing to us about movies involving serial killers and kids. No, we don't hate kids, and there's nothing entertaining about watching them die in creepy or violent ways on film, but these movies always get to us.
It's most likely because most people have kids in their lives whom they love (or at least like), and the idea of them disappearing or worse is a haunting one to entertain.
Horror movies are supposed to get into our heads and make us feel helpless and fill us with dread. Is there anything more dreadful than the thought of a child being raped and murdered?
|Peddle, bitch, peddle for your life get some help!|
23 years later, sweet little Sinikka rides off on her bike, and never returns home. Her bike is found in the same cornfield where Pia was done in by the creeper duo. There's no body this time tough to say whether the girl is dead or alive, and so the hunt is on to find he before it's too late! Unless it already is, then, the hunting is pretty much in vain. Still, the hunt is on!
|Young girls really have to learn to ride away from strangers.|
The police in this town apparently suck, because after 23 years they have nothing on the original case, and here they are with the same predator doing the exact same thing to another girl. Is Sinnika alive or have they merely to find her discarded body? Will the Cops get their shit together and figure out how to use DNA and fingerprint evidence properly? Far be it from me to ruin things for you, but suffice it to say that European films seldom end on happy notes.
|The clown knows. Somehow, he always has.|
The movie looks beautiful as well, showcasing the gorgeous German countryside through the eerie lens of the movies events, which just adds to the creepiness of it all. It's all tightly paced and suspenseful, and kept us interested until it was over. Just the idea of predators at large living among us is enough to give us the willies.
|Dudes like this are out there, so hide your kids.|
Hotties in this movie, we offer you some pics of Diane Kruger to fill that void, because she's both German and hot. You're welcome.
