Winter Ridge

2018

A police detective investigates a series of suspicious deaths whilst his wife is in a coma, only to discover the nature of the crimes are far closer to him than he imagined.

Detective Ryan Barnes has his world turned upside down when his wife ends up in a coma following a car accident. Spending his days visiting her and desperately hoping she’ll recover, Ryan is pulled into a case involving a spate of deaths of old people suffering from dementia.

As the bodies begin to pile up, Ryan suspects that the deaths aren’t coincidental as they first appear and he believes they are the work of a serial killer. As he desperately searches for the killer, Barnes’ doubts increase. Do the motives fit the killer he’s chasing?

Festivals

Stills

‘Winter Ridge carefully dodges all predictable twists. This isn’t your average adrenaline-inducing action indie.  5/5

Dirty Movies

‘The film has the feel of a classic Agatha Christie story with the influence of the slew of Scandi-noir series that have kept viewers riveted over the past few years’
‘The story reels you in and you become quickly invested’

Entertainment Focus 

‘A lovely blend of action, dialogue and suspense to keep viewers engaged throughout the story, even having all its key suspects very much in the picture until the final act’

Big Picture Film Club

‘A welcome change to focus on victim, motive, and procedure rather than sheer brutality.’
‘Terrific performances’
