Overview

Social media is hell for everyone, but in Lost Gully Road, Lucy (Adele Perovic) discovers the hard way that it can be a case of life and death. Forced to get out of town – fast – her concerned sister Cassie (Eloise Mignon) finds her temporary accommodation in a region of Australia’s lush yet isolated rainforest. Physically and psychologically immobilised by fear and wrestling with extreme boredom on top of it, Lucy’s already tenuous mental health begins to crumble as we ask if her unseen visitor is a figment of her imagination or a very real threat to her safety.

"… a slow burner of a tale that doesn’t feel rushed to get to where it’s going."
— Filmink
"The Babadook meets The Entity in the most original and powerful Australian haunted house film in years."
— Alexandra Heller-Nicholas

Why You Should See This Film

As the sophomore feature of Australian filmmaker Donna McRae, Lost Gully Road is visually and tonally a striking shift from her 2011 debut Johnny Ghost, yet both movies at their heart share a fascination with haunted women struggling with issues of control, identity, reality and history. With Lost Gully Road, the strange sense of isolation and entrapment so specific to Australian cinema is reconfigured in a horror context to grant McRae a voice to speak of the ubiquity of sexual violence and the subjectivity of trauma in a way uniquely her own.
