Horror with an actual message!
31 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

This film is bloody brilliant.

Simply, coinciding with a music festival at Rock Island,a couple stumble upon a body in a tunnel that leads to the island. The tunnel however begins at AVP a research facility that has been creating diseases etc. as weapons. The couple get onto the island and then all hell breaks loose as the infection breaks loose.

The cast is terrific, and includes some of my favourite Aussie actors such as Grant Bowler, Damian Walshe-Howling and Vince Colosimo. All perform well.

The writers surely had some fun with this, and I loved the not so subtle attacks on the NSW government, politics and politician in general, and on big business, and how they can both get away with anything yet are obviously the cause of or ignorant to the problems faced by the people.

A thoroughly enjoyable film, and my only complaint is that its wasn't longer! This would have been terrific as a mini series!
