Aaron's Spoiler-Free Review of Lake Mungo

"What’s this? Another mockumentary film", you say? "What’s gotten into this guy?!" I hear you bellow. "Shenanigans!" You add. "I still would!" said your missus.

Well, yes, I suppose it is quite the coincidence, seeing as the one before this was for the awesome Digging Up The Marrow, but hold tight, nursey, because this shit’s about to get heavy!

Lake Mungo is the paranormal rollercoaster ride of emotions about a young girl named Alice who drowns in a lake, survived by her loving parents and her twat-faced brother, Matty, who are all convinced that she had come back to haunt their lily-white asses.

That’s pretty much as far as I can get into it at this point, but get a load of this!

Lake Mungo is one of those rare treats where you get to watch a film that is genuinely creepy, thinks outside the box and doesn’t feel the need to rely on stupid fucking gimmicks in order to be as cheesy as possible and then whining because they wouldn’t let you direct any of the Star Wars movies because you’re a minge-faced fuck-stick (yes, Joss Whedon, I’m looking at you)!

Story development on this bitch also keeps the viewer guessing from start to finish, which is something that paranormal thrillers can’t really seem to do nowadays, and this one in particular kept me asking questions throughout with its unstoppable twists, turns and reveals!

"But wait, how can the mockumentary formula be scary and atmospheric when it is all past tense?" I hear you say behind your monocle.

Well, I say unto thee, normally you would be right, but in this instance you are way off the mark, good sir, because Lake Mungo is creepy as fuck and keeps you looking over your shoulder for a good hour or so after its climax!

Aaron's Spoiler-Free Rating: It’s an intelligent ghost story and a must for fans of indie horror – 8/10


Aaron James Waters is a best-selling Pulp Fiction writer who has written more books than he's actually read.

He's also the rotten apple of the group who thinks this whole Star Wars thing needs to hurry up and die already.
