Storm warning review
Well i Finally got around to seeing"Storm Warning"another fantastic entry in the"ozplotation"genre and i have to say it's up there with the best.
You may see DVD notes saying stuff like"From the man that brought you"wolf creek""or from the director of"Urban legend"But forget all that this to me was way better than any of those movies,anyway here's the basic premise.
A young couple Pia(Nadia Fares)and Rob(Robert taylor)Decide to take a small boat on a romantic fishing trip but the rob decides to take the boat further out than he should thus rendering them stranded and seeking shelter.
This is where they come across a remote farm house just as the storm hits and that is the only place for miles and the only shelter they can find,baaaad move!
Soon to return is the 2 brothers jimmy and brett and this is where it really kicks off,They quite rightly say that these "yuppy fuckers"have no right to be in there home and threaten to kill them,then it calms down with the brothers saying there only kidding,But if you've seen this kind of movie before you know they ain't!
I really don't want to give too much more away apart from you don't know what direction or how serious these outback rednecks are and it's very unsettling indeed with there sexual advances towards Pia and Rob pretty much defencless,also there is talk of their father who is upstairs and must not be woken up,i wonder what he'll be like!
Ok,so it's pretty predicatble but very enjoyable at the same time,I'd like to harp back to an old podcast of stephen's from www.jafmp.com where he said about certain movies where you feel a lot for the characters or you couldn't give a fuck about them,like the french classic"Them"real nice young couple really feel for them and that whats makes this film stronger than a hell of a lot out there,great acting,excellent australian cinematography,great characters and if you like your gore you WILL not be dissapointed!
So i'd give this film 8/10,go watch!
As a final note this dvd is being given away brand new on a competition on the group"jonnys film forum"on Facebook,So to be in with a chance of winning it go join and answer the question!
Closing date May 4th,8.pm GMT.
