EDITOR’S NOTE: We originally shared this movie on January 14, 2020. Wile Eye was kind enough to send us a DVD copy of the film, which gives us reason to bring it back to your notice.
Lost Gully Road tells the story of Lucy, a directionless young woman who travels to a secluded cottage in the forest to wait for her sister. However, time seems to drag on. Cut off from the outside world other than phone calls with her sibling, Lucy turns to drinking to pass the solitary days of waiting…until a potentially sinister presence joins her.
Director Donna McRae, on hero IMDB bio, cites the films of Val Lewton as an influence. I will say that this Australian horror film looks gorgeous and has a definite look and feel, which is a major plus in the streaming horror world, where nearly every movie and concept feels recycled.
This is pretty much a one woman acting show and Adele Perovic does quite well in it. While the story may be slow at times, the talent on display more than makes up for it.
Lost Gully Road is available on demand and on DVD from Wild Eye Releasing. You can learn more at the official site.
DISCLAIMER: We were sent this movie by its PR company.
