Film Reviews: “Lake Mungo” (2008)

Image

“Lake Mungo” is a Australian mockumentary similar in style to the TV show “Unsolved Mysteries.” Alice Palmer, a teenager, has drowned mysteriously and her family is interviewed about dealing with the grief, and the supernatural events occurring afterwards.

This is one of the creepiest films I have ever seen. It gets under your skin and haunts you. The family hears strange noises in the house at night, and Alice’s image shows up in photographs.

I don’t want to spoil too much. I love how the film is presented, with reserve and believability. A rare gem not to be missed!

3.5 out of 4.0 stars.
