I rewatched this as I was going to the cinema to see the 2nd one as a friend wanted to see it.

I remember enjoying this film when I first saw it.
It is a masterclass in horror, perfectly set up and subverting ones expectations as it takes you on the bloody rollercoaster set in the red outback of Australia.

Yes, it’s not the most progressive film, there is violence especially against women (pretty much as in most horror films), and the message, if there is one, is muddled and mired in backwoods thinking, but as a horror film it is constructed very well, not usually the case in grindhouse. The pace of the film is well balanced, you get to know the victims for a good half an hour before Mick Taylor turns up and start mashing up the town.
It is more than mere torture porn, there be intelligence and talent here.

John Jarratt has created a monster that is in equal parts terrifying and ridiculous.

If you like a horror, then it’s worth checking but definitely not for the faint of heart.

3.5/5
