Repulsive thriller inspired by true events about a trio of hikers (Cassandra Magrath, Nathan Phillips and Kestie Morassi) who, stranded in a remote region of the Australian Outback, find themselves in a nightmarish ordeal when they are "rescued" by a neighborly bushman (John Jarratt) who turns out to be a sadistic killer. Eliciting convincing performances out of his Aussie cast, director Greg McLean chillingly creates an unsettling sense of isolation, building suspense before detouring into dehumanizing and bloody depravity. Gratuitous realistic violence and gore, including vile scenes of mutilation and torture, sexual degradation, as well as recurring rough and sexually raw language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
