well worth watching quality viewing
I loved this movie, I thought it was just the right amount of everything. Scary, Bloody, Psychological. Everything you could want in a horror movie honestly. It's sad, it's terrifying and mainly because you know this type of shit actually goes on. The ending however (I WONT SPOIL IT BUT DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT) was very tensioned filled but I reckon they could have left it in a more realistic way rather than the typical happy go lucky kinda way.
Thought I saw the abductress girl in a coffee shop yesterday, she was beautiful, until I remembered what she'd done, and how her film had been ruined by a stylised slo-mo Joy Division ending.
Great Aussie movie, dark and disturbing, even more so because this is based on real life events.
good film worth a watch
