      Matt P Right let me get straight to it. Australian outback - kind of - they've all that space and people do go missing. The orb played a massive part on the contrary to what the disappointed audience described because this orb is based on real events. An ongoing speeding problem putting people at risk. But, for sure it's perhaps low budget, the editing left a lot to be desired and some of energy, acting and dialogue was a bit weak considering you've well known actors for the leads. Nonetheless this movie deserved more and was misunderstood by much of the audience. Yes it's cheesy cliche. Think about it. Three Americans (must have bags of money but Americans in films always do) to go travelling. They end up meeting this Jack-Black kind of guy and a tall good looking guy. The movie then picks up pace but sometimes a little too fast or inconsistent. But, at least if this had been shot in America it'd have been way worse. Most Americans can't act. It's a fact. But Australians tend to be a bit more subtle, mellow, calmer and rely on their performances or stories as oppose to all this CGI you claim was lacking and that's what I liked. You say the movie was confusing, not really because it built up and lead to other things. You just have to watch properly. It's nothing spectacular. Not even when we get a glimpse of a desperate shot of the chest of the missing girl the movie is based on does the movie make a lasting impression. But, it is still fairly exciting and gripping. We do care somewhat about the characters even though you know it's partly predictable. Most horror movies are especially low budget ones. But this movie had plenty going on and plenty of good moments to command a better rating. Shame on the audience for being so keen to criticise. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/23 Full Review jesse o You know, I've always said that Australia is one of the places I've always wanted to visit, if I had the money and wasn't terrified of flying. In terms of the actual place, I think parts of it are relatively similar to where I live. And I say part, because we don't have a place like the Outback here or even anything remotely close to it. Reasons why I want to visit are irrelevant and personal. But I digress, I've seen plenty of films from Australia and, honestly, I've pretty much enjoyed a large percentage of them. Their films are, typically, very good. There are obvious exceptions, there's one that comes to mind right now but it's based on a real-life case where this woman murdered a teen girl. It's called In Her Skin and it felt more like a Lifetime television movie than something you'd pay to see. I'm sure there are others, but of the Australian films I've seen, that one stands out as the weakest. And, of course, this movie also immediately comes to mind. I'll be honest, this isn't a bad movie in the slightest. If I'm being honest and fair, this ends up being a surprisingly decent little movie. Perhaps nothing that you would ever recommend to your friends, but it's something that you can watch without wanting to pull your hair our or thinking that you wasted your time. It's obvious that this film did not have the biggest of budgets and you can see that from the look of the film and the fact that the special effects they use, mostly, are based around this giant orb of light that appears if you go a certain speed down this road or something. In the end, honestly, this orb ends up being a bit of a red herring and fairly irrelevant to the story as a whole. So, essentially, this orb ends up being a bit of a waste of time, since it doesn't play any real part in what actually happens in the film. I will say, to be fair, that the whole teens stuck in the woods while some...force hunts them down and kills them is a little tired. But I will say that they do about as good a job at giving you a reason why this ghostly force/apparition is hunting them down, even though, in the long run, all these teens are actually innocent and they should not have had to pay for someone else's crimes just because a ghost is pissed off. Having said that, again, they do really try to give you a reason for why this shit is going on and why the ghost of this teen girl wants revenge on the person(s) who wronged her. I wonder if she's done the same thing with the others responsible, though not everyone is gonna buy into this whole seeing the ghost of a dead motorcyclist who was driven off the road to his death by some teens. Unless this ghost has other ways of getting to people, but it just doesn't seem that way since the whole thing seems to be surrounded around these woods, since it was the place this teen died. But I digress, the acting, particularly for a low-budget horror movie, is surprisingly solid all things considered. I can't complain about that in the slightest. Perhaps one of the problems I have with this is that it feels like a bunch of other film's we've seen before. There's not one original bone in this film's body. That's not always a bad thing, I've seen plenty of films that have no original bones in their body and they still end up being enjoyable. I just think it's a lack of real scares or, really, attempted scares that hurt the movie to me. What they do is the most basic stuff possible. You could even say that it is pedestrian. But this movie is, at the very least, really short and it never overstays its welcome. It's well-paced and it builds to its climax in a competent fashion. I don't really know what else to say about this movie. It's certainly not the best Australian film I've ever seen, not by a fucking long shot, but this is still a decent horror movie. It won't scare the shit out of you or anything of the sort, but it will keep you distracted for about 80 minutes. Can't recommend it, but you could have been watching The Axe Murders of Villisca instead. Yikes, that movie sucked. This film is average at best, but it's like Taxi Driver when compared to Villisca. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member For a "in the woods" horror, I think Lemon Tree Passage is definitely a "try it once" movie, because it is a nice add-on to such productions and it would be a shame to let it pass unnoticed--It has a lot of the old, in a new mix, that manages to offer 84 minutes of good time... Little surprise horror!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member avoid at all costs its a dreadful film Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Wasnt terrible, but the movie really had nothing to do with actual urban legend. Basically built this unoriginal storyline behind it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
