Don't miss this....
12 October 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For those of us who HAVE seen this film, I think we all know that the comments from "Craig" are more based on a personal vendetta to condemn this film rather than deconstruct it in an analytical and professional manner.

For a start, you can not go past the brilliant cast employed by Nexus. Whilst Chris may have started his career on Home and Away that is in no way a reason for him "apparently" having NO acting skills whatsoever. Many Home and Away actors have made in big in Hollywood and Chris is one of them (if none of you have seen Kings yet, you're sorely missing out). On top of that, you've got Emma Lung who has been in 48 Shades of Brown, Cooks and Entourage(USA) as well as Jenna Lind, one of Australia's greatest young talents who has this year alone been on Underbelly and 30 Seconds(Foxtel).

To add to this, the filming conducted by the amazing crew in Perth brings a touch of professionalism to the production that you rarely see in other Australian films (i.e Wolf Creek, Prey etc). The colors, camera movement and shot types are impeccably orchestrated right to the very end, similar to the American horror film you would normally encounter at the box office.

Finally, the overall narrative of the film is unlike anything you would have, or will find in Australian cinemas this year. Crush keeps you guessing right to the very end of the film about what is going to happen to our main characters and doesn't desensitize us by trying to scare us every two seconds. This is probably why "Craig from Canada" refers to the film's pacing as "terrible". Frankly, I would much rather watch a horror film which keeps me on the edge of me seat with suspense like the old classics of the 1970s and 80s rather than have my sense constantly bombarded with violence and manipulating scenes.

All in all, this is a brilliant effort by a first time director and production company and not only does it deserve a chance, it deserves a better reception than the one it is receiving from people who are more interested in spreading vicious rumours than actual reviews.
