Summer of ’84 (2018, dir. François Simard, Anouk Whissell & Yoann-Karl Whissell)

A conspiracist teen and his friends became convinced a cop neighbour is an active serial killer. Solid 80s-set teen mystery/horror that’s careful to pace itself and focus on atmosphere as much as plot. Doesn’t overplay the nostalgia either; this is an impressive and well-sustained movie.

Here’s the trailer.
