+1 star for teaching people the truth about koalas.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I really REALLY wanted to love this film. But unfortunately, having read the book, I couldn't help but being disappointed at how much the changed from the original plot. I really enjoyed the casting, however the film loses points for its pacing, and more or less unoriginal 'exciting moments' (car chase... Come on). The shining test was the only one I was impressed with, as understandably adapting the horror story test from the book would have been difficult.
