In A Violent Nature

In A Violent Nature

9:30pm - Tuesday, Jun 25, 2024

When a group of teens takes a locket from a collapsed fire tower in the woods, they unwittingly resurrect the rotting corpse of Johnny, a vengeful spirit spurred on by a horrific 60-year old crime. The undead killer soon embarks on a bloody rampage to retrieve the stolen locket, methodically slaughtering anyone who gets in his way. With Ry Barrett, Andrea Pavlovic, and Lauren-Marie Taylor.

"Like a swift axe to the skull, 'In a Violent Nature' is blunt and makes no excuses for itself. How refreshing." (Slate)

"Diabolical Canadian slasher film 'In A Violent Nature' has art on its mind and blood on its hands." (Globe and Mail)

"The grossest, most elaborate kill-scenes I've ever seen in my life all fit seamlessly, where in other films a similar hodgepodge could fall flat amidst the chaos. This feels classic and completely new all at once." (Salon.com)

"Claiming inspiration from Terrence Malick and others, Nash has attempted an ambitious blend of art house and slaughterhouse whose rug-pulling ending will polarize, even as its moody logic prevails." (New York Times)
