Shy and awkward, 14-year-old Daniel Hobson (Sebastian Gregory) is a quiet boy living on a quiet street in the idyllic, picture-perfect suburb of Sunshine Hills. Viewing his world through the lens of an old camera, Daniel is - like many in the neighbourhood - both entranced and disturbed by the sinister rumours that circulate in whispers from house to house.

  • Not bad for an Australian production but not that great either. The storyline had plenty of promise but with a few inconsistencies and a weird ending, I was left confused. Disappointing.

  • Not a bad little story, although too much "slow" padding. Thought the two young actors were quite good and rest OK. Not much subtlety at the end, which is a pity. Could have been a much more nuanced story but suspect the budget, or the director's imagination didn't allow for it. There are a lot worse movies out there!

  • Even with a penchant for the quirky this was a little too slow and no Donnie Darko. Still good enough to see through to the end.

  • You have to love Aussie movies. This one is good with a fairly sad story though, worth watching.

  • I didn't understand all of it and the ending was confusing, this Aussie movie had enough going for it to entertain me. Most of the performances were terrific. Excellent cinematography and score. Would have worked better as a straight serial killer thriller but worth watching if you like a challenge.
