    Wake in fright is a mesmerizing film that takes you on a journey with a man who is stuck in an outback town as he slowly descends into madness. it loses one point for the actual animal cruelty that happens in a scene

    A well-warranted remastering of his Aussie new wave classic.

    It's not dated. It is powerful, genuinely shocking and rather amazing.
