Keeping with my recent appetite for retro Aussie cinema I watched Roadgames tonight. Recently inducted into the "Ozploitation" sub-genre it remains one of the best thrillers Australia has produced. Richard Franklin was a Hitchcock aficionado and together with Everette De Roche he crafted a tight mystery chiller thats plays out like Hichcock's Rear Window on the road. Anyone who actually reads this movie group will know that i idolise Everette De Roche and I think this is amongst the best he's written. Its structured perfectly and scattered the humour generously throughout. I heard a rumour that it's being remade and i pray to God that it's just a rumour. Leave it be!
