Brilliant!
6 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely brilliant! Intriguing, well thought out mystery.

Good acting. Original and inventive story.

The ghost cum murderer was extremely malevolent and exceedingly creepy in appearance.

The end left a few loose ends that could have been tied up, but all in all, an absolute delight.

Better than other high profile Australian movies like Picnic At Hanging Rock and the rather garish Wolf Creek.

This should be up there with the very best and be far more well known, it certainly deserves to be.
