Critic Reviews for Lake Mungo

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (1)

  • Ghostly shenanigans are dryly delivered in the ambitious, restrained and well-mounted Oz mockumentary "Lake Mungo."

    July 6, 2010 | Full Review…
  • A convincing mock-documentary style lifts "Lake Mungo" beyond spooky supernatural mystery into the realms of emotional truth-telling.

    June 23, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Take away the creeping sense of supernatural dread, and what remains is a low-key tale of a mourning family, made more tender by the broken stoicism of the survivors.

    October 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • One of the horror genre's smartest and most innovative films of the 2000s.

    August 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is an underappreciated, underseen gem.

    October 16, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • This masterpiece of modern horror takes relatively safe elements and turns them into nightmarish factors of a grim and realist mockumentary. [Full review in Spanish].

    March 17, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Lake Mungo

  • Sep 23, 2020
    A convincing case for the Faux Documentary format in horror. All the characters here are haunted by the past, present, and future which while eerie is more sad than anything else.
    Alec B Super Reviewer
  • May 09, 2018
    As far as horror mockumentaries go, this is a bleak and very well-made study of loss and grief that may not be as scary as it is spooky but builds a compelling mystery as family secrets are exposed and we begin to realize that things are not exactly what they seem to be.
    Carlos M Super Reviewer

    It wasn't scary, more spooky. A little slow-moving, but not terrible.
    Erin C Super Reviewer
  • Dec 10, 2013
    Very slow, but I guess that it was intended to be that way. Mildly interesting...
