"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 o... read more

"First viewing - April 2nd The most impressive thing about this film is its commitment to being as realistic as possible. I could easily see someone land on this while flipping channels & not realize it's fiction instead of a documentary. As a horror movie, it doesn't really deliver though. There are some moments that are mildly creepy or just odd, but that's about it. So it winds up working best as a faux-documentary, and in that respect it rather excels. In the end it was interesting enough th"

"One of the most disappointing films for a long time. I've been meaning to see this for years and finally bought the Bluray for this October horror movie marathon. The mockumentary footage part is done quite good and it's believable material, but I guess they forgot the horror parts for this. There's pictures and grainy footage of people standing and then the music hits and is so much louder than anything else in the film. So i didn't find this scary at all. For years this I've come across this "

"Jay Bauman mentioned this film in a episode of Half in the Bag, so I knew I had to see it. It took five frikking weeks to get here, I watched it and to my suprise it was one of the tamest horror films I've seen in years. And then it gave me nightmares. Lake Mungo is a style over substance movie, but not in a bad way. The story is engaging enough on it's own, but it's the documentary film wrapping that makes the film work really well. I guess you could call Lake Mungo a found footage film ("
