Director: Greg McLean. Cast: Nathan Phillips, Cassandra Magrath, Kestie Morassi, John Jarratt. Screenplay: Greg McLean.

Twitter Capsule: Brutal demo of the pure arbitrariness of both evil and survival. Earns grisly images with meticulous all-around craft.

VOR:   "F" from Cinemascore but bullseye with horror aficionados and a hit with critics. For better or worse, has encouraged other sadists with cameras they might make something good.
