I'm sure some of you have seen The Tunnel by now. Its production and release is kind of unique with single frames of the film being sold to the public for $1 each. This formed the basis for much of it's funding and it was released on BitTorrent at the same time as cinema. I happily confess that The Tunnel scared the living shit out of me. Finally a genuinely terrifying and totally effective movie. It's presented as a documentary about a news report crew who venture into Sydney's abandoned underground tunnel networks to film a story about a proposed government water conservation project. In researching the tunnels the crew is told of homeless people who have gone missing and desperate to uncover the story, the crew descend into the pitch darkness of old train networks, reservoirs and disused air raid shelters. Being a horror film they are, of course, not alone and the film becomes a frantic search for a way out. This is nail biting stuff and its constructed so well. Two of the surviving members tell their story in an interview format and the bulk of the film comprises of their real footage. The images captured are hair-raising and if viewed in the right atmosphere like I did (alone, late at night, total darkness, max volume) it makes for one of the most satisfying horror films you'll see in a long time.
