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. Ray discovers that Alice led a secret, double life. A series of clues lead the family to Lake Mungo where Alice's secret past emerges. Lake Mungo is a mystery, a thriller and a ghost story

A gem of an Aussie thriller

“"Alice kept secrets.She kept the fact that she kept secrets a secret..."

A "found footage" mockumentary, Lake Mungo is not a typical horror movie in the vein of The Blair Witch Project or The Exorcist. Instead of a schlocky series of cheap scares, Lake Mungo's freshman writer-director Joel Anderson has crafted a low-key supernatural drama which examines the emotional repercussions of a family dealing with grief. With that said though, this engrossing Aussie thriller is nevertheless saturated in a chilling sense of dread. Sometimes the best type of terror is psychological, and that's exactly why this movie is so effective. As a matter of fact, Lake Mungo is more frightening in its own way than those senselessly gory horror movies that so often invade multiplexes.

" If you didn't think much of the original Paranormal Activity you likely won't care much for this. But while the overt scares are pretty infrequent there's a decent creepiness factor at work in this documentary-style movie. At times it feels akin to a "Ghost Hunters" episode, but at others the performances are fascinatingly fresh and authentic, keeping the film compelling enough all the way through."

"Home - New I think why this film works for me is because it works on an existential level. Whilst the film is largely a conventional ghost-story, told in mockumentary format, the crux of the third act is largely built around how someone would react to knowledge of their own death. There is something deeply unsettling about not only having such an event be a fixed point but having it confront you and it genuinely creeped me out."
