A decent NZ thriller/horror movie
27 November 2000 | by (Tauranga, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This film, while very 'NZ' could still hold it's own against many American made films of the same genre. The acting is great and whoever the old man, who was the 'Scarecrow' is, you are a legend! The film portrays a young boy growing up amongst his own problems added with the ever increasing number of bodies, rather well. The cinematography is superb and it will leave NZ locals wondering, "where did they film that? That looks like my house!" The slow tension is added to by an eerie soundtrack of slow, moody strings and the film is under great direction from a New Zealand legend, Sam Pillsbury. For anyone outside of New Zealand, I suggest you see this film. It may not have the cliche' Hollywood effects but the overall package is something superb. A great film! 8/10
