Slow, boring and ultimately irrelevant
6 September 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Have we been spoiled by expecting contemporary films (with the exception of porno) to start off with a bang? A blood-splattered wall is all you get here then the pic drifts off into dialogue from there and 15 minutes in and you're still wondering do you give a toss if a serial killer is on the loose, or not because 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' it aint.

Nice to see the colonial Victorian-style weather-board houses of tropical Queensland but sadly nobody was drinking 'XXXX' - the Australian word for beer.
