Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo ★★★★

Haunting; I really love how a movie like this builds up the dread from the interviews that start up the film as we're led into the footage of the incidents onward. But I think that Lake Mungo benefits a great deal from the format in which it's told, because the documentation of the events unfolding via the form of found footage only adds a visceral effect to the paranormal circumstances being shown on the screen and also turns the central story all the more somber.

Could be the best work of found footage horror I've seen, alongside the brilliant Noroi: The Curse.
