A really rubbish film that is so bad it's good
21 May 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie years ago very late at night.

So my recollection is a bit sketchy. But from memory it was a poorly made horror. But damn funny.

It was pretty much Friday the 13th but set on a houseboat on a lake. Very Aussie setting (reminds me of my home) so it's nostalgic for me.

It had Animal that used to be on Hey Hey it's Saturday and bunch of other half baked Aussie celebrities. Not to mention Alan Dale who's now gone all Hollywood and jagged roles in 24 among others.

So of course it's a bad movie but I reckon it's one of those so bad it's good types. Check it out, but don't pay more than 50c to see it.

Anyone who says this is the worst Aussie film ever has obviously never seen Muriels Wedding. Now that was a steaming pile of you know what.
