Focused on nothing

Look Where You Want To Go and the Horse Will Follow

Red Hill is a lovely, perverted Aussie horror film, something David Lynch might have written and directed if he were in a literal mood and fond of westerns. It’s about the day in a life of a rookie cop, his first day out in the sticks, where he finds himself dealing with smartass associates, an ogre for a boss, horses, half-eaten cows, and an escaped convict intent on raising the town and burying it. I swear this film has the best villain of all time, an aboriginal killer with a half burned face, who efficiently blasts everything in sight, particularly if it’s part of the constabulary. I know this sounds too campy to be anything but schlock, but it’s not. It’s really good! Trust me on this one!
