Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo ★★½

the commitment to the documentary style was impressive, but that doesn’t make up for its lack of originality and overall dullness. sadly, there’s not a lot here to keep you invested in this wannabe twin peaks. not one frame of this was half as frightening as it wanted to be, and even the stuff the could have been (i.e the footage and photos of alice) just ended up becoming repetitive before completely flatlining. the exploration of grief was its strongest attribute but even then it just got repetitive. maybe i’m missing something but this just didn’t do it for me. the only way i could see this being remotely scary is if i was 8 years old at a sleepover. otherwise, sorry but nah. it also needs to be said that the brother was a total freak.
