Described by Nick Cave as “the best and most terrifying film about Australia in existence”, this deeply disturbing dive into alcohol drenched outback culture is a classic of Australian genre cinema!
Sydney teacher John Grant (Gary Bond) has been working at a remote school in the sun-baked Outback. To spend Christmas with his girlfriend in the city, Grant needs to travel via Bundanyabba, or ‘the Yabba’, a nearby mining town rife with back-door two-up games and a suspicious attitude towards anyone who doesn’t chain-drink. When he loses his money in a rookie gambling mistake, Grant is forced to spend the night with the locals, including Dick (Jack Thompson) and the menacingly bear-soaked town doctor (Donald Pleasence). He doesn’t have a good night.
