An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney. As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them.
When hundreds of videotapes showing torture, murder and dismemberment are found in an abandoned house, they reveal a serial killer's decade-long reign of terror and become the most disturbing collection of evidence homicide detectives have ever seen.Written by

Despite the film having been completed and its theatrical trailer attached to several widely-released horror films in 2007, the film never received an official theatrical, DVD, or Blu-ray release. No official explanation was given as to why it was pulled from a theatrical/home-media release at the time. Its first official release didn't occur until seven years later in July 2014, when it became available as a "Video on Demand" title through DirecTV. It wasn't until 2017 that Scream Factory (thanks to their sub-licensing deal with MGM) that the film was finally released on DVD and Blu-ray October 10th 2017. See more »
When talking about a murder in Reading, Pennsylvania the female news reporter makes a reference to the town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The reporter pronounces Lancaster as "LAN-CAST-er" but the town (at least this town in Pennsylvania)is properly pronounced as "LANK-aster." See more »

Perhaps if they spent a little bit more money on this movie, it would have been a little more believable and thus would have been a little bit more enjoyable to watch. I get the impression that they were trying to do 'Blair Witch Project' meets 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' but Blair Witch was way more believable with the home-made-feel and Texas Chainsaw Massacre had a decent plot behind it. I'm not a big fan of horror/gore movies but both Blair Witch and Texas Chainsaw were enjoyable.
'The Poughkeepsie Tapes' kept me wondering where the punchline was going to be. It was silly how the camera constantly avoided the action, and so little money was spent on faking injuries. Funny how everyone that gets cut up is always found laying injury-side-down.
I would recommend that you don't waste your time watching this movie.
