Five Not-To-Be-Missed BIFF Flicks (Brisbane)

Baz McAlister in Time Off Magazine (Brisbane)


Cult Aussie filmmaker Jon Hewitt spins this dark yarn about three teenagers who stumble upon a serial killer (Joel Edgerton, in a sublimely creepy performance) going about his dark and dodgy business and blackmail him to sort out a guy who’s been bullying them.

Wouldn’t we all like a serial killer at our beck and call? Shot locally in Queensland and making good use of the Glasshouse Mountains (you’ll never believe they could look this creepy and monolithic), Acolytes is a tense little homegrown shocker that you really ought to check out.
