About the Movie
Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. He sounds distraught, like he's about to do something terrible to himself. Gunnar drives up to the secluded cabin under a glacier where Einar is holed up and soon discovers that there's more going on than he imagined. As the two men come to terms with their dead relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get in.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Tighter editing would have enhanced the film's effectiveness. But the cinematography is striking, sound and music are superb and the two leading actors - who carry much of the movie by themselves - both give telling performances.
Fresh: an ambiguous, creepy study of conflicting desires and haunting pasts - as well as a literally glacial take on Don't Look Now.
Both moving and chilling!
RIFT was one of the biggest surprises of 2017 for me. I love understated thrillers and solid queer dramas, and RIFT brings the best of both worlds in one film. Wonderful performances and atmospheric direction really bring the haunting film home in more ways than one. Excited to share this with more people!
