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.

Snowtown Murders (2011)

AKA: Snowtown

Starring: Daniel Henshall, Lucas Pittaway
Director: Justin Kurzel

A teenage boy falls under the spell of his mother's new boyfriend and his friends.

My Take:
This is one of the more disturbing movies a person can watch. Mainly because it's all portrayed in such a realistic fashion. The characters and their actions make almost every scene full of brutality.
You watch as this family comes under the spell of a serial killer. The young boys, who have endured sexual abuse from other adults, gravitate towards this man who provides them with a stable father figure, who is anything but stable.
This nihilistic tale is based on a the true events of killer John Bunting and the "Bodies in the Barrels" murders that occurred in Australia in the 90s.

Rating: So Good
