Aussie Horror Returns with Snowtown
There is almost nothing I like more in this world than sitting down with a slice of Aussie horror. There’s something about these films - even the bad ones - that keeps me enthralled like few others. And that’s why today’s news has me thrilled. There’s more ‘Down Under’ horror en route! YAY!
Thanks to the news from Screen Australia, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for Snowtown, a true-crime story about a teenager who finds his world threatened by both his loyalty for, and fear of, his newfound friend, John Bunting, Australia's most notorious serial killer.
Directed by Justin Kurzel (Blue Tongue) and written by Shaun Grant, Snowtown promises to be a sophisticated character drama with an engaging yet horrific twist. In this chilling and compelling true story, we go behind the headlines and experience one of the darkest chapters in Australia’s modern history, a gruesome series of murders known as ‘the bodies in the barrels’.
We’ll be watching the development of this one closely and will bring more news to you as it comes in.
