There's Something In The Pilliga (TSITP) is a standout among found footage films. Minimal budget and many non-actors have helped convey a mood and theme that is desolate, dark and downright creepy. Imperfection is undoubtedly a gift in this case whether it be through the cinematography or in fact the acting - it simply works. It's also not hard to follow. Two guys meet two girls at a pub in outback Australia on New Year's Eve and talk them into a drive to see their friend in the woods. They arrive only to find the friend is missing. The fact it is also based on a true story is also downright creepy. Australia is a dangerous place and not very forgiving when you're out in the outback. It is no different this time either. When the four people try to find the missing friend they are stalked by a Bigfoot and one by one taken out. The fact you barely see the creature also works. Less is more in this case. On the whole it's easily in front of other found footage and Bigfoot films for many reasons. Leoni Leaver and Brendan Byrne's acting, the cinematography, the locations, the score has the story. It doesn't rely on the monster too much and uses the outback as a scary character. The outback is arguably to scariest character of them all! Easily a four star film, highly recommend it to any horror or found footage fan who likes suspense and subtle scares. If you didn't like it I'd say you need to watch it again because the more you do the better it gets as you learn more details. (TSITP) is real hidden Aussie gem!
