Jack en Liz proberen krampachtig hun gezinnetje bijeen te houden. Terwijl de omgeving siddert onder de terreur van een seriemoordenaar, verhuist het koppel naar Hemlock Lake, een klein vakantieplaatsje. Hier hopen ze in alle rust aan hun relatie te kunnen werken. Maar al snel blijkt dat schijn bedriegt in Hemlock Lake. Als de zon ondergaat boven het rustige dorpje aan het meer, vallen Jack, Liz en hun dochtertje Angie ten prooi aan een mysterieuze lokale man die vastberaden lijkt om het "gelukkige" gezinnetje te vernietigen...

Scheiden doet meer dan ooit lijden, in deze meeslepende Canadese thriller met talloze plotwendingen en dubbele bodems.


  • SEPARATION is a slow broiler, final act gut-puncher of a film. Filled with moments of paranoia and hallucinogenic nightmares which make you question early on what's real and what isn't, SEPARATION borrows from such paranoia-riddled films as REPULSION, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, and THE STRANGERS, while still being unique in and of itself.
  • Separation is a smart, quiet, and fascinating piece of "dramatic" horror storytelling; it's not about shocking you with simple scares. It's actually about normal fears we live with every day, and it handles them with a good deal of class, confidence, and insight.
  • Gets the audience squirming in their seats. Fans of a unique story will dig this film, and if you like indies, you'll fall in love with this dastardly film which ends with a still shot that sent chills up my spine considering what was about to happen next. Separation is certainly worth a look.
  • this little indie is a formidable debut by White, who manages to produce enough tension to warrant some jumps and enough intrigue to keep interest. White is able to blur the lines between reality and fantasy in a way that will have you guessing through to the end.
  • : a bracing, unexpected bit of thriller/horror that challenges you to stay ahead of the action but not get too smart for your own good. Its clever, sharp production and clear style set it a measure above many indie films of this kind.
  • White's precise direction is controlled brilliance and the two primary leads convey dread so convincingly that you'll be chewing your nails way before you know exactly why you're even doing it. You crave suspense? Like intensity? Feel like you can't be surprised anymore? Separation is for you.
  • a twisted piece of filmmaking that will have you questioning just you're watching right up until the final moments.
  • This indie surprise is pretty good. Separation has as a solid story and the leads carry the movie through its rough patches.
  • Separation is one hell of a zinger and a refreshing film that reminded me how great thrillers are constructed.
  • a first-rate little thriller that has the potential of acquiring a much larger audience, if given the proper promotion and marketing.
  • I enjoyed Separation very much ... It is rare to find something that surprises you and Separation certainly does that.
  • Separation is directed, shot, acted, and edited beautifully. In a true David Lynch-esque fashion the drama is broken up with unsettling and often jarring nightmarish flashes of horror. After the first viewing your brain will try its best to process it, but it will crave another viewing. The plot twists and turns to keep you guessing and even when it is all said and done you will want to go back for another ride. Separation is a great thriller that will keep you entertained.
  • Separation does a stunning turnaround at the end of the film that will leave you gasping. A hell of a good film, and I highly recommend giving it a look.
