Australia has consistently produced genre films of an extraordinarily high quality – Wolf Creek, Road Games, Mad Max and more recently Boys in the Trees. Nestled right there in the middle is Joel Anderson’s excellent and spooky tale Lake Mungo which is set to screen as part of Revelation Perth International Film Festival’s Australian Revelations
Sixteen-year-old Alice Palmer drowns while swimming in the local dam. When her body is recovered and a verdict of accidental death returned, her grieving family buries her. The family then experiences a series of strange and inexplicable events centered in and around their home.
Profoundly unsettled, the Palmers seek the help of psychic and parapsychologist, Ray Kemeny, who discovers that Alice led a secret, double life. A series of clues lead the family to Lake Mungo where Alice’s secret past emerges.
