This is most definitely a movie I will watch 1 time & 1 time only! There were some scenes I just could not stand to watch & I had to turn away.The thing that really makes these types of movies even worse is that they're based on a true story.A true life horror movie that I can't stand to watch more then once.Viewer discretion is advised.Watch at your own risk

Evil comes in many forms, but it's often the form we least expect that is the most terrifying. Based on real events, Snowtown Murders is about the guy down the street, the neighbor next door, your mother's new boyfriend - who just decides to up and murder people. It's a chilling experience - and uncomfortable - but powerful as well.

Contains an air of realism that is rarely captured on film, The Snowtown Murders is best watched with full knowledge of the true story it's based on, as it doesn't really go into much details and may leave some people a bit confused and with more than a few questions. However, the atmospheric dread is thick and the performances are hauntingly authentic. Definitely worth a look, but it's not for the faint of heart as it's not a pleasant viewing experience, just a very well-crafted one. Truly chilling in its grisly implications.
