DC’s Shudder Pick of the Weekend – Wake in Fright

Published

Wake in Fright

For our latest Shudder Pick of the Weekend we’re heading to the Outback for some vintage terror, 1971’s Wake in Fright starring a truly crazed Donald Pleasence. Be warned, though… Wake in Fright is presented in its entirety on Shudder, and that includes the animal hunting scenes, which viewers may find offensive. Discretion is advised.

Synopsis:
When Australian teacher John Grant stops off in the rural town of Yabba, he quickly gets pulled into the dark world of strange, ultra-macho townies who spend their days binge drinking, gambling and hunting kangaroos. For the timid Grant, this starts out as a thrilling release of his id. But after he loses his shirt gambling, Grant struggles to escape the bad luck – or perhaps a conspiracy – that keeps preventing him from leaving Yabba.

Long unavailable on home video, Ted Kotcheff’s superb thriller is a deeply unsettling study of the horror of the unchecked male psyche.
