Lake Mungo Unboxing

Long unreleased in the UK home media market, Joel Anderson’s 2008 cult Aussie horror Lake Mungo finally makes its physical debut with another beautiful Limited Edition release from Second Sight Films.  

Sixteen-year-old Alice Palmer tragically drowns while swimming in the local dam and in the days that follow her grieving family begins to experience a series of strange and inexplicable events. Seeking the help of a parapsychologist, their search for answers reveals that Alice had been living a disturbed life and hiding dark secrets. Something had haunted their daughter and the terrifying truth awaits at Lake Mungo.
