Is it true that not only has a 3D film never come out of Australia, but that there’s never been a nature-run-amok movie about flies? I can’t come up with one of either off the top of my head, though I’m sure The Foywonder will chime in if the latter isn’t accurate.
I really can’t help but hate the title for the new Australian spook story Lake Mungo; I wish I could. There’s just something so goofy about it, maybe because it’s so similar to “Mongo”? Whatever the case, the film itself looks pretty slick, as is evident by a four minute clip that showed up over on cinematographer John Brawley’s site.
Today a nice long, chunky synopsis appeared online for a new Aussie horror movie in the works called Road Train. Personally it’s the first I’ve heard of it, but from the sounds of it we could be in for an interesting treat.
I detected some rumblings about Lake Mungo during AFM but have yet to hear anything as to whether or not it’s any good. The Aussie film, which premiered under Darclight at AFM, is now being remade in the States by Paramount Vantage, according to THR this morning.

Know how a situation can go from bad to worse? Like you’re out for a stroll and accidentally fall into a manhole, breaking your legs, losing your memory … and then the CHUDs come after you? Something similar is going on in the Australian indie film The Ghosts, which we just got the first word on and images from today.
No we're not talking scenic postcards from the hometown of former WWF grapplers, The Moondogs. What we have here are the first shots from the upcoming indie effort From Parts Unknown served up nice and hot!
It has been a good long while since Jamie Blanks' Urban Legend and Valentine. I guess his time away from the director's chair had to come to and end, because the Storm Warning is rolling in fast now ("New Storm Warning Art" - January 2007).
It’s good to hear that Jamie Blanks (Urban Legend) is staying away from Hollywood for the most part; they seem to screw up the man’s work and turn it into nigh unwatchable tripe.
Since Dimension nabbed the release rights to Jamie (Urban Legends) Blanks' latest Aussie-set horror film Storm Warning, all has been quiet about their plans for it.
Remember Jamie Blanks? The director who burst onto the scene in the mid-90’s with Urban Legend, then disappeared from the scene (in a directorial status, at least) after Valentine? Well, he’s back with a new film called Storm Warning that sounds like it may not be half bad.
