Movie Info

Toronto doctor Helen Matthews, mourning the death of her husband, retreats to the isolated island cabin where they'd spent some of their most cherished moments together. Her reverie is cut short when a mysterious man, Will, washes ashore with a bullet in his shoulder. As he recuperates, the two develop a tentative connection, though Will refuses to explain what happened. When a severe storm traps them on the island as Will's would-be killer returns, their ability to trust each other then becomes a matter of survival. This film is the story of a couple warily exploring their growing bond under extreme circumstances.

Critic Reviews for October Gale

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (13)

A rather silly, unbelievable thriller.

Apr 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Filmmaker Nadda's stock-in-trade is restraint, but October Gale builds up to nothing much.

Mar 27, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

October Gale is a quiet thriller set in the wilds of Georgian Bay. It's an uneven movie with some odd jolts in the story, but the performances -- especially from Patricia Clarkson -- are noteworthy.

Top Critic

Writer-director Ruba Nadda is wonderful at building up suspense for the first half of her latest film. But once she's got our attention, she has nowhere to go with it.

Mar 26, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A film that begins as a languorous study in grieving and shifts with screeching abruptness into a crime thriller.

Mar 12, 2015 | Full Review…

The best parts of this tepid thriller, which seems designed to actually lower audience's heart rates, arrive before the plot kicks in.
