"Next of Kin" is a cult horror classic from Australia.
It is effective at building suspense, and has some genuinely frightening, shocking moments.
The plot concerns a young woman who inherits her mother's nursing home. Strange deaths occur at the home and when the lady reads her mother's diary, finds that events in the past are mirrored in the present.
The movie is less a slasher than an Aussie giallo. It's a violent murder mystery with Hitchcockian suspense touches, rather than the typical hallmarks of the slasher genre, eg. a masked killer stalking victims who split up to be offed one by one, and sex leading to a grisly death.
The film is far more interested in atmosphere, which it provides really well.
