This is about a triad of Australian youths who discover a killer burying a body in some woods and decide to use their leverage to get him to kill their bullyish enemy instead of turning him into cops. Things happen, events unfold, intrigue ensues.

I more or less liked this movie with the exception of the two dozen cheap loud noise scares. Too many "Boo!"s or music swells leading to intense silences. In his Q&A the director mentioned that was a way to build suspense on a budget but whatever. Let the story stand for itself.

It wasn't bad though, had its moments. Even if I have no clue where those two guys came from who beat up Parker before the Red 4x4 got to him, or why Parker was driving fast through the forest, or how 4x4 even found whatshername's body, but oh well.
