A unique horror film from Iceland can now be enjoyed in the warmth of your home.
Lamb–nominated for Best International Feature Film in this year’s Academy Awards–hit theaters here in the States back in October, and is now available on several VOD platforms, according to a report on JoBlo.com.
The movie–which was named best feature-length film at this year’s Sitges Fantasy Film Festival–follows a childless couple–Maria and Ingvar–on a remote farm in Iceland, “who find their quiet existence shaken by the astonishing discovery of a mysterious newborn among their sheep.” They raise the child as their own, but soon face “the consequences of defying the will of nature.”
Described as a “genre-defying mix of horror and folklore” and a “darkly compelling fable,” the R-rated Lamb is the debut feature from writer/director Valdimar Johannsson. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Hilmir Snaer Gudnason, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson and Ingvar Sigurdsson.
Lamb debuted in the U.S. and Canada to $1 million, marking the best-ever opening weekend for an Icelandic film in the U.S.
