This is not a good breakfast movie.
I typically stay away from sleazy rape murder “exploitation” films, but the Australian 80s aesthetic and promise of a (mostly) cat and mouse home invasion thriller attracted me. I also love looking at clothing, objects, buildings and home decor from other time periods, and on film. It’s time travel.
Once you get past the first (uncomfortably sick) first act, it becomes what I was looking for.
P.S. this might as well be a Mick Taylor origin story.
