A young female hitchhiker is murdered. Similar murders happened in the same neighborhood and the police is suspicious of two brothers who seems to have a secret grunge and a scheme going on against one another.

This is no major thriller, but an interesting entry for people who might be interested to know about its existence as an Aussie investigation film and look into it.

Britt director Tim Burstall gives an intricate but sympathetic slacker. It stars John Waters (Breaker Morant), it is lively and there is suspense, murders, etc.  But it is also a bit clumsy due to uneven acting and it is not very screenplay-wise. Nonetheless it provides its moments of b-movie fun if you do not care too much about unnecessary tangled details.
