An Australian/Canada co-production, this horror film has been turning the heads (and straining the nerves) of critics and audiences alike since it was released earlier this year.

Directed by Jennifer Kent, it concerns a young widow, six years after her husband’s death, trying to rein in her “out-of-control” son who is haunted by nightmares that monster is trying to kill them.
