Three backpackers stranded in the Australian outback are plunged in a hellish nightmare of insufferable torture by a sadistic psychopathic local.
According to director Greg McLean, the film is full of subtle hints that all is not going to turn out well for the characters. For example, during the title sequence, there is a shot of a map with Broome circled. Written just to the right of the circle is 'DI'.
Someone's got a crush on you.
Ben Mitchell: Yeah, Graham the attendant. I could tell.
When Liz and Kristy first escape from Mick's and are heading into the outback, it is supposed to be the dead of night, yet in some shots it is dawn.
The producers would like to thank ... the people of Hawker, Port Augusta, Flinders Ranges and South Australia, ... Frank, Marie and the entire Mclean family
