Trivia

This movie, according to 'Antony I Ginnane' on the DVD special feature, was the first or one of the first ever Australian films to pre-sell at the script stage to an overseas territory. See more »

Goofs

During the takeoff roll, the first officer calls "Vee-one", then "Vee-two", then "rotate". V2 is the climb-out speed with an engine failure, and is never less than the rotate speed, so would not be achieved until the aircraft is airborne. See more »

argento down under
15 July 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Director David hemming worked with dario argento on deep red one of dario's masterpiece's. you can see his influence all over this movie. all though this is no argento classic if your like his work you really should check this out. it contains the creepy mood, the scatological narrative and very good use of sound that is unsettlingly.

even though it.s over long and a bit of a let down in the end, i enjoyed the journey much like a argento films, it not the end but getting there that counts.

you would not no this was an Aussie movie but i suppose it does not matter for the story is universal. dean seale was cinematographer on this and he did a master job creating a mood for this ghost story.

as a piece of Aussie history in cinema when we made a wide variety of genre movies unlike today. plus i had forgot how lovely jenny agutter was i think its time to watch an American werewolf in London again.
