Gone

3

Directed by first-timer Ringan Ledwidge and co-written by Andrew Upton (aka Mr Cate Blanchett), this latest backpacker slasher sees Brit-couple Shaun Evans and Amelia Warner regret taking a ride from Scott Mechlowicz’s psycho-Yank. The build-up might be too leisurely for punters expecting Wolf Creek-style carnage, with a dead ’roo the closest thing we get to a stiff for the first 80 minutes. Still, DoP Ben Seresin makes the most of the Outback’s arid intensity, while Mechlowicz is sinister enough to compensate for his participation in EuroTrip.
