Snowtown – Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

One of the most harrowing and brutal films of the last 20 years, Snowtown is a truly disturbing insight into the mind of a killer, through the eyes of a young boy in 1990s Australia. The dark and distressing film is a truly remarkable feat of filmmaking, taking us deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness with mesmerising cinematography, eerie performances and a haunting score.

Rereleased on Blu-ray in a superb Limited Edition from 101 Films, Snowtown is a must-see for fans of the horror and crime thriller genres.

When 16 year-old Jamie (Pittaway) is introduced to a charismatic man, a friendship begins. As the relationship grows so do Jamie’s suspicions, until he finds his world threatened by both his loyalty for, and fear of his newfound father figure, John Bunting (Daniel Henshall): Australia’s most notorious serial killer.
