My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Maybe.

Huh.  I ended up watching two Australian serial killer movies back to back without knowing anything about them.  What are the odds.  THE SNOWTOWN MURDERS (2011) is a bleak drama based on true events and this one is a fun picture with some gore and lots of laughs.  The funny isn't always there which makes room for plenty of great horror moments that beat what you'd see in most mainstream slasher/horror movies these days.  Really.  But it is very funny.  The opening and closing bits offer plenty to smile at.  This is a horror comedy that gets the mix right.  The gags are often sick (but funny) and there's tension and unease.  Check this one out.
