[It's] scary cinema pushed to the brink of punishment. But there's no question that what it sets out to do, it does alarmingly well.

The vogue for retro-horror, particularly the stripped-down shivers of 1970's slasher flicks, continues apace in this nasty little piece of work from Australia.

There is a line and this movie crosses it. I don't know where the line is, but it's way north of Wolf Creek.

It's a story bound to give even the most seasoned thrill seeker nightmares.

A grimy gut-chiller that unsettles as much as it thrills, violently shunting you to the edge of your seat before clamping onto your memory like a rusty mantrap. Feel the fear.

The film's preference for female suffering gives it a misogynist undertow that's even more unsettling than the gore.
