Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo ★★★★

Lake Mungo is a really interesting mockumentary horror that pulls ahead of the pack in this overcrowded genre. The scares are very subtle and spaced out in the film but I didn't mind given the believably genuine performances from the entire cast. Every interviewee is playing their part to perfection, whether they need to be awkward, skeptical or quietly heartbroken; every moment with the characters feels real. Unfortunately I watched this on a sunny afternoon so I wasn't too scared, but I think I'll have to give this another go on an October night because there's a lot to love here.
