It's this year's Cannes Film Festival winner of the Un Certain Regard Award. And it's based on a short story by John Ajvide Lindqvist, the cult Swedish author of the best-selling vampire-horror novel "Let the Right One In"

Check out the official U.S. trailer for "Border," the critically lauded dark romantic fantasy fable about a strange love story between two Swedish werewolf-like mutant misfits who both have been marginalized by society, yet have come together to empower and draw strength from each other's experiences.

The film, which stars Swedish actress Eva Melander and Finnish actor Eero Milonoff, who both appear in heavy prosthetic makeup, is directed and co-written by Danish-Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi, who previously made his feature debut with the 2016 horror movie "Shelley."

Selected as Sweden's official Oscar entry in the foreign-language category for the 2018 Academy Awards, "Border" will be released theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on October 26th, with other cities to follow.

synopsis:
Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It's almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can't identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself. Tina, like Vore, does not belong to this world. Her entire existence has been one big lie and now she has to choose: keep living the lie or embrace Vore's terrifying revelations.
