Directed by Mario Andreacchio
In this gripping Australian terror tale, a doctor is haunted by visions of murderous ghosts after an Aboriginal patient dies of mysterious causes. Refusing to sweep the death under the rug, Cathy soon uncovers a connection to her father’s recent archaeological dig and a vicious mass murder committed by whalers against Aboriginal islanders 200 years earlier. Even worse - the ghostly killers now appear to have set their sights on her! Daring in its exploration of historical Australian racism, THE DREAMING plays out like a vivid, terrifying nightmare captured on film.

Yeah....I should have fast forwarded through this one.
Performances OK, production details were handled competently (soundtrack music did seem a bit louder than the dialogue, however), seemed to be about enough plot for a one-hour TV anthology episode, rather than a full feature. Like some other reviewers, I found the pace too leisurely for comfort. I also found none of the characters engaging, I sat and politely waited for the experience to finish.
I tried I really did but 41 minutes was too long! First Shudder fil that I couldn't sit through
Excellent movie. Incredibly thoughtful.
Good premise. Good music. Nothing else good.
