The Snowtown Murders Reviews

November 8, 2019
Dark, claustrophobic and depressing, but it's too destructive for its own good.
March 12, 2012
It has no particular observations about the mind of psychopaths that is worth the incredibly nasty feeling you get from sitting through its incredibly grim two hours.

Observing the character's regular and repeated acts of cruelty becomes numbing after awhile.

Overlong and grim to the point where some scenes are virtually unwatchable...

A movie that heaps so much dank atmosphere on its suburbanites, you can't help but sigh with relief when events turn to serial killing (finally?).
February 28, 2012
A dull thriller of ultra-bleak withholding.

The result is a movie that can be admired in many respects from a distance but is progressively less emotionally engaging.

It's a world where few deserve trust and fewer still make good on it.

It's technically proficient, and succeeds in creating a perverse atmosphere, but it doesn't create a world that you'll want to inhabit for very long.
May 9, 2011
A mildly intriguing, yet ultimately detached and pitiless portrait of psychopathy.
