Is there really a monster roaming around Adam's cabin? Mixing folk horror with Lynchean surrealism, Sator keeps you guessing till the very end...
Adam leads a reclusive life in a cabin in the woods. His grandmother’s stories about a supernatural being named Sator led him to install a ‘deercam’ in front of his house. Does the monster he fears really exist or is he just getting more and more paranoid? Blair Witch-like folk horror infused with Lynchean surrealism will make your skin crawl for sure.
On his third feature director Jordan Graham virtually operated as a one-man band, up to single-handedly building the lead character’s cabin! The narrative is deliberately opaque, mixing the ‘now’ with flashbacks and incidents that seem to come out of nowhere. Not only does this reflect Adam’s blurred state of mind, it also keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The sound design plays a special role and adds to the overall creepiness of the film: no music, but layers of natural sounds, like creaking doors, radio voices and whispering inside Adam’s head. Sator will keep you hooked until the very end… and beyond.
