In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before.
A man who works at a morgue can communicate with the dead. One of the stiffs tells him something private and he decides to use it against someone who wronged him, with dire results. The cool part about this movie is the CGI effect used to make the dead bodies talk. It's nothing spectacular, but it does add to the overall unreality of the situation. Add some decent plot twists and an engaging enough story and this one is highly watchable. It does have its reaching moments though. Sometimes the scenes feel a little forced, like 'here is something creepy for you to be scared of,' but the film makes up for that with realistic dead morgue bodies, complete with cut open chest cavities, heads in jars, and various body parts laying around. It looks like the morgue from hell. A solid film about what happens when we take the law of the dead into our own living hands. 8 out of 10 stars.
