Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
In 1987 Perth, Australia, John and Evelyn White. are a pair of serial killers who target teenage girls. One night, Vicki Maloney, who impetuously sneaks out of the house for a forbidden party, is lured by the pair into their clutches. Now paying dearly for her naivety, Vicki must endure a horrific nightmare of confinement and torture at the hands of this depraved pair. Against these murderers, Vicki's only chance of survival is a mix of subterfuge, cunning, and mind games while her estranged parents and her boyfriend desperately try to learn what has happened and what can be done to find her. Meanwhile, the Whites have growing problems of their own, which could provide the only hope Vicki could have to survive.Written by

When Evelyn is in the queue at the delicatessen, there is a packet of Nongshim Onion Rings in metallised film packaging on the shelf to her right. It is highly unlikely that this imported Korean snack would have been around in Australia in the eighties, as would have been any imported snack. Besides metallised film was not introduced to food packaging until the 1990's. See more »

Australian gem about a sexual-predator serial killer couple
Australian gem about a sexual-predator serial killer couple that is so wrought with realistic emotion and purpose that it appears to be based on a real couple though it's a fiction. And that Emma Booth is ridiculous good. Her emotions play across her face for all the world to see, just as I would guess her character to be like. And for the most part the emotion playing across her face is anger, an anger that is just short of red-hot exploding anger. It's only for her man that she has love all over her. And that's her tough luck. He's the one who wants to kidnap girls and rape them. He's the one who wants to bind them, keep them for days, torture them and then kill them. They both get all hot and bothered by the dominating and overwhelming of their captives but he's the one who murders.
