Wake in Fright
Directed by Ted Kotcheff
When Australian teacher John Grant stops off in the rural town of Yabba, he quickly gets pulled into the dark world of strange, ultra-macho townies who spend their days binge drinking, gambling and hunting kangaroos. For the timid Grant, this starts out as a thrilling release of his id. But after he loses his shirt gambling, Grant struggles to escape the bad luck – or perhaps a conspiracy – that keeps preventing him from leaving Yabba. Long unavailable on home video, Ted Kotcheff’s superb thriller is a deeply unsettling study of the horror of the unchecked male psyche. NOTE: Wake in Fright is presented in its entirety, featuring animal hunting scenes, which viewers may find offensive. Discretion is advised.
A man on vacation stops off in a rural town filled with strange characters and becomes unable to leave.
Cast: Gary Bond, Donald Pleasence
I bought this movie several years ago with no prior background. IT WAS/IS Amazing!!!
One of the best films of all time. Very deep dive into collective madness.
Movie was awful n crazy. Bunch of alcoholic men n weird sex crazed women who enjoy getting beat up physically n verbally. The killing of kangaroos was disgusting then having these rwo drunken men having sex. I love Donald Pleasance but this is probably the worst movie he's done in his career
no thank you killing kangaroos
Hated. Would give zero skulls. Don’t waste your time.
