Baby it’s cold outside, so that means it’s time for The Snowman Killer to do his thing – and that’s not beheading fat frozen friends with sticks for limbs and rocks for eyes.

Instead, it means the gruesome beheading of unsuspecting women. This killer’s as sick as they come, in this crime thriller that’s based on the novel of the same name by Jo Nesbø.

Michael Fassbender stars as Detective Harry Hole (really!), who is faced with tracking down the killer after the discovery of a missing woman’s pink scarf draped over a creepy snowman.

Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Val Kilmer, J.K. Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Chloë Sevigny, The Snowman is due in Australian cinemas on October 19.
