While some thrillers don’t shy away from immediately ramping up suspense, others prefer a slow burn that creates a moody atmosphere and slowly builds tension. That’s exactly what we have in The Winter Lake, a new Irish thriller that marks the directorial debut of Phil Sheerin with a script from David Turpin (The Lodgers).

But when Tom discovers something worrisome in the nearby lake, they find themselves embroiled in a tense confrontation with their neighbor Ward (Michael McElhatton) and his daughter Holly (Emma Mackey), who seem to have their own dark secrets.
