COMING HOME IN THE DARK

Director: James Ashcroft. With: Daniel Gillies, Erik Thomson, Miriama McDowell, Matthias Luafutu, Billy Paratene. New Zealand 2021. 93 mins.

 

Unbearably tense and ruthlessly bleak, director James Ashcroft’s electrifying thriller is an emotionally raw, out-of-control spiral into shock pulling no punches in showing the evil darkness that lurks within. All the Hoaganraad family want is a fun road trip through the beautiful New Zealand landscape. But no sooner have they laid out a lakeside picnic than two strangers come strolling up to their idyllic spot. Things quickly turn threatening then murderous as the clearly unhinged psychotic duo plainly has an agenda. But what exactly, how does it link to their hostages and what is the endgame for these cold-blooded lunatics?
