All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Wake In Fright (1971)

Starring: Donal Pleasance, Gary Bond
Director: Ted Kotcheff


Premise:
A school teacher from the a small town in the Outback heads to Sydney for his yearly break. Along the way he loses his money and gets stuck in another small town where he is taken in by a local. Over the coarse of a few days this educated man goes down a spiral of depravity and loses his sense of being.

My Take:
A fine film about how easy it can be for a person to spiral out of control when put in certain situations. There is violence in almost every frame of this movie (both real and anticipated) including an incredibly intense kangaroo hunt that is sure to turn a few stomachs. It's an intense movie to watch and just might have you thinking about situation in your own life.

Rating: So Good
