Synopsis: Who killed Alice Palmer? Just kidding...sort of...
This is a Fauxdoc-style film, covering the events surrounding the death of 16-year old Alice Palmer. After going missing (we presume she drowned) during a family trip, Alice's body is eventually discovered floating in the water. Once this happens, the movie jumps from one subplot to the next as it attempts to discover what happened to her. The ending may not be exactly what you'd expect.
What'd we think of Lake Mungo?
(Out of 5 stars)
Next time we'll be checking out The Taking of Deborah Logan, or "The Taking", as it was going to originally be called. It's a horror film from 2014, shot in the same fauxdoc (I just can't use "mockumentary" in a serious way) style as our last one, Lake Mungo. The "Documentary" the film is centered around is an exploration into the declining health of Alzheimers patient, Deborah Logan. The movie starts out as one would expect but things begin to decline, for the characters, pretty rapidly. Check out the trailer & then tune in for our discussion!
