Storyline

People are getting murdered down under via a barbed wire noose and then their eyes are gouged out. There are a variety of suspects at a nearby girls boarding school including students, teachers, and a nun. We also follow a rivalry between the local surfer townies and a group of preppy guys from a local all-boys school. Written by Josh Pasnak

Trivia

When this film was released theatrically in Australia, it included a William Castle-like "Fright Break", a short intermission which gave audiences a chance to walk a yellow line to the cinema's exit if the film was too frightening for them, giving those who took the so-called "Chicken Walk" to the exits their money back. The "Fright Break" sequence is included on the Australian video release. See more »

My favourite film of alltime
6 January 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

It's sad this film hasn't seen more publicity, it's a great watch and just shows the Aussies do it better every time! Any film with Christine Amor has to be good and Leon Lissek is suitable weird in an offbeat role of the school teacher. I am now the proud owner of an authentic film script and it is my favourite piece of film memorabilia...if you ever see this film, watch it, you'll be pleasantly surprised. It lulls you into a false sense of security, you think you've seen it all before, then does the unexpected. Watch it!
