A young woman running a wildlife sanctuary in the Australian outback is in for trouble when she is confronted by three kangaroo hunters. Bored with killing kangaroos, they decide to kill the animals in the sanctuary, and when they see how attractive the owner is, they decide to have a little "fun" with her, too. Turns out that they may get a bit more "fun" than they bargained for.Written by
One of about five collaborations of writer Rob George and director Mario Andreacchio. The other titles include the later movie 'The Dreaming' (1988), the same later year's tele-movie 'Captain Johnno' (1988), the earlier short film 'Abduction... Who's Next?' (1984), and several episodes of the television series 'Pals' (1987). See more »
The UK 1987 Embassy Home Entertainment video tape release had 57 seconds of BBFC cuts to remove shots of Cassandra Delaney having her clothes cut and shots of her breasts when she is tied to the car. Even with the cuts the movie was still classified by the BBFC with an 18+ certificate. See more »

Australia's answer to "I Spit on Your Grave"? Maybe, except this is actually a much better (and more watchable) film. A woman who owns an isolated vast wildlife reservation realizes that her Roos and other animals are being illegally hunted by some local hooligans. When she tries to set the perps (one of whom thinks he's Crocodile Dundee) straight, they start messing around with her. After a few days, things get out of hand and she finds herself their new prey on her own property. Dubbed an action/thriller by most, I was expecting this to be a cheesy laugh-fest. The only thing about it that resembles an 80s action/thriller is the often light-hearted score (which morphs into more appropriate horror music at times.) Otherwise, this is filled with tension and a humane heroine that you want to root for. This follows the typical rape/revenge formula of the 70s, but it isn't as difficult to watch. A totally fun flick that's one of Australia's better horror offerings.
