This slow burn horror, based on the true story of Jordan Graham’s grandmother is a triumph of grit and determination. It took seven years to get to market and Jordan made the whole film himself with very little production budget. Sator is a chilling and atmospheric slice of slow-burn horror that follows Adam (Gabe Nicholson), who lives a life of isolation in a desolate forest. He spends his days hunting for food and keeping watch for a supernatural entity called Sator. Adam and his brother Pete (Michael Daniel) have been told to be wary of Sator by their grandmother, Nani (June Peterson), who claims that this spirit has been guiding her through life as a whisper in her ear. Whether or not the spirit plays any part in the death of family members remains a mystery.
