Critic Reviews for Red Billabong
A very well-made, well-directed film that will satisfy fans of the genre, with the final reel providing a nice pay-off...The problem afflicting too many good Australian films right now is an apparent lack of marketing savvy.
A unique and original creature feature, Red Billabong overcomes any VFX limitations with an intriguing story and truly tense scares, resulting in one of the more innovative and interesting monster movies to be released in some time.
Audience Reviews for Red Billabong
I liked premise and thought the characters worked very well at times. The end result is a bag of missed opportunities and odd filmmaking choices. The director and DOP created a tense final 20 minutes, yet the stakes didn't feel that real. I will give the film strong points for not giving the viewer a cliche conclusion but the characters are too cartoonish and fake, The film just lacks the scares early on, that intro needed to be a cracker, yet leaned a little to the unnecessary. I'm impressed with what the creators have done with the lack of budget but they attempted a bit much, The end result is scattered, comedy seems forced and not natural at times, actors delivering lines with little care and certain character motivations are questionable. The brother leaves the cave and then remembers his brother is down in the cave, I really shrugged my shoulders at that one. This may grow into my creature feature collection, only time will tell. I may have only picked the negatives. I've been going through backlog of movies and reviewing them all over again with dates but a film like this I cannot waste my time. 26-03-2018.
