This faux-documentary is a beautifully constructed meditation on grief, as tender as it is terrifying.
Dir Joel Anderson
With Talia Zucker, Rosie Traynor, David Pledger, Martin Sharpe
Despite being one of this century’s most critically acclaimed horror films, Joel Anderson’s multi-layered faux-documentary remains criminally underseen. Following the sudden death of their 16-year-old daughter, the distraught Palmer family invite a psychic and a parapsychologist into their home to uncover the truth behind the tragedy. A beautifully constructed meditation on grief, Lake Mungo is as tender as it is terrifying.
