Lake Mungo started off awesome.I was hooked wondering what was happening behind the photos but when I found out what was going on I didn't care anymore & the rest of the movie seemed to fall apart after that.Maybe they gave it away too soon before it was even over & there was still 20+ minutes left in the movie.As good as it started, It's a shame the way it had to end

Although it feels like it could have aired on The Discovery Channel (albeit, a bit more graphic than usual) this movies plays like a fuex documentary, with interviews, home recordings and news footage. It's both a ghost story and a cautionary tale about how little we know about our own children. It's a bit slow, but gets points for originality.

Maybe it was too subtle for me, but it was mostly very dull. Great acting, however.

Twin Pea- Lake Mungo is seeped in creepiness, deriving its scares from the unseen (limitations of its budget). The actors are all tremendous at their craft, never a greater asset than for a work of fiction that endeavours so earnestly to convince you it's hard fact. This earnestness is a strength for the first two thirds of the film, but by the time we reach the third act the narrative experiences a pile up of twists, each of which independently could have closed the story. Forcing these twists together shakes the mockumentary's foundations of realism so violently that it requires quite an effort of will-power not to laugh come the film's oh-so-spooky credits. Despite all this, Lake Mungo is an effective thriller. It falters often, but the film's ultimate, fatalistic twist still hits …
