Lake Mungo ★★★★½

Fuck, I think I finally found a horror film that legitimately terrified me. I’ve seen disturbing movies before, but nothing that made me check the locks on my door and sleep with the light on. During what is easily the scariest scene in the film, my cat jumped on my bed, and dude, I jumped so high in the fucking air. This was a great experience. Lake Mungo is a genuinely terrifying horror film, that is not just scary for its genius direction and use of found footage, but for its heavy emotional punch. The ending is brilliant, but stay for the credits, as the true horror has just begun.
