Horror Channel Frightfest goes Danish when The Unraveling screens on Friday, August 26.

The American produced film, directed by first-time Danish director Thomas Jakobsen, is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience that captures one man’s relentless fight to survive two brutal forces at once: a mysterious killer in the woods and a ruthless heroin addiction. In a desperate pursuit to find redemption, Michael (played by Zack Gold), must navigate a vicious wilderness and face the unimaginable if he ever hopes to make it back to his fiancé and unborn child. In addition to Zack Gold, the film also stars Jason Tobias, Bennett Viso, Bob Turton and Jake Crumbine. The Unraveling was co-written by Thomas Jakobsen and Justin Monroe.

FrightFest’s own Alan Jones, film critic and producer, said “Horror Channel FrightFest is delighted to be hosting the European Premiere of Thomas Jakobsen’s smartly tense thriller with a sting in its tale. It is FrightFest’s duty to bring the unusual and interesting to a wider audience and The Unraveling most certainly fits that brief.”

International Sales Agent, Betina Goldman MD, is delighted to represent The Unraveling and is thrilled by what the inclusion into FrightFest means for the film. “We love the suspenseful, unsettling and restless climate that Jakobsen so successfully achieves. The viewer is thrown into the deep, and can never really predict reality from delusion, thus being utterly engaged from start to finish. This film has been raising a lot of interest in the press and we feel a brilliant commercial and festival career ahead.”
