Critic Reviews for Coffin Rock
The only thing scarier than a crazy lover carrying your child is carrying the child of your crazy lover.
Rupert Glasson's persuasive psychological thriller offers an interesting variation on the sociopathic 'stalker' plot.
Spinning Adrian Lyne's Fatal Attraction on the gender axis and milking maximum suspense from its isolated Australian setting, Rupert Glasson's Coffin Rock is a well-crafted thriller.
A genre picture that reveals some strong qualities before going just a bit off the rails during the home stretch.
Just off the beaten track from Wolf Creek and Cape Fear is Rupert Glasson's promising feature debut Coffin Rock; a must-see destination for deftly crafted thrills and chills.
he quiet, understated setup of the first part of the film is an honest and thoughtful exploration of male ego and infertility. Then Glasson turns up the horror heat and his film becomes another bunny-boiler look at obsession.
Audience Reviews for Coffin Rock
Cast: Robert Taylor, Lisa Chappell, Sam Parsonson, Terry Camilleri, Geoff Morrell, Joseph Del Re, Jodie Dry, Guy O'Donnell, Peter Green Director: Rupert Glasson Summary: A moment of weakness breeds unexpected terror for happily married Jessie Willis (Lisa Chappell) and her longtime husband, Rob (Robert Taylor), when she sleeps with a young stranger named Evan (Sam Parsonson) and finds herself pregnant with his child. The pregnancy is problematic enough, considering Jessie and Rob have been trying for years to conceive. But then Evan reveals himself to be an unstable stalker. My Thoughts: "The movie has received mixed reviews. I happen to be one who enjoyed it. The movie gave me chills. Sam Parsonson was really creepy and totally believable in his role. The guy has some major psychological problems and obviously some daddy issues as you will see in the film. I have seen many stalker/psycho killer films, but this one was definitely one of the better ones that have been made. For a low budget, independent, Australian film it was a pleasant surprise. Give the film a chance. WARNING: For animal lovers who don't like watching films with animal violence, there is a disturbing scene having to do with a baby kangaroo. It's a disturbing film."
Not tense or thrilling, Coffin Rock mixes some well rounded drama with ridiculous and laughable "horror". The Oirish madman has some delightful hilarious monologues as he slips into comic madness. The idea of the couple trying to conceive is interesting, and it could have made a great thriller. If only it hadn't revealed the loony's intentions so soon. It should have built upon a fairly absent character, rather than showing us a vicious Kangaroo beating to begin with. Anything after that just seemed tame by comparisons. Not exactly worth your time.
boring so no wonder its slipped under the radar! But this is a tense psychological thriller at best its just a really poor thriller its so boring! The storyline is unorignal and its all been done before, the acting is ok and although the irsh guy is a psychopath it doesnt make this movie any more interesting! This guy picked the victims in a fertility clinic and follows them to this remote willage and starts making friends with this woman who he eventually has sex with but when he discovers shes pregnant assumes it his and goes to many lengths to destroy her life by stalking her and everything! Not very good and not a very good thriller boring as hell!
