      Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The Dunes is an absolute blast to watch. Rated: 3.5/4.0 May 17, 2024 Full Review David Griffiths Subculture Entertainment A great indy crime thriller brought together by an intriguing plot and wonderful acting performances by Copping and Phillips. The Dunes also shows that Copping is a director to watch. Rated: 3.5/5 May 16, 2024 Full Review Annette Basile FILMINK (Australia) ... a subtle but very real atmosphere of foreboding, lifting The Dunes into quality genre filmmaking territory. Rated: 14.5/20 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Alejandro Turdo Hoy Sale Cine The Dunes is a totally ominous Thriller, creepy and intriguing enough to keep the mystery going strong until its very shocking end, even though the path offered to take us there may not be free of a few mishaps. Rated: 6/10 Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper jackiekcooper.com The twists of the plot stay with you even after the movie has ended. Rated: 6/10 Apr 16, 2024 Full Review Bobby LePire Film Threat The acting is fantastic, the cinematography stunning, and the story very engrossing. This is not to be missed.

      that g The Dunes is a masterfully crafted movie, pulling you into the world of Nicholas Rice... he is as normal as you and me. Still, you feel every moment of anticipation and anxiety in this psychological thriller where the actors do the hardest acting of all, not being a superhero but an everyday person thrust into the midst of angst at its most extreme mental points. I would and will watch it again!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/25/24 Full Review Tammy N The cinematography on this movie is amazing. The music score goes very well with the pace of the film. The movie is a suspenseful drama that builds slowly over the course of the film. Martin does a good job portraying Nick. This movie has some twists that are unexpected. It was great seeing a cameo by Stumpy and really awesome to see Roundy. Highly recommend! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/22/24 Full Review Sarah Michael N The suspense! These actors did an incredible job of slowly unfolding a wildly unexpected thriller. I may not ever recover from the story, which was layered to perfection. Bravo to the writer as well! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Jamie R The story had a heap of potential but I think the majority of the film's budget went in to filming some establishing scenes in LA. Overall the story line is very predictable with weird plot holes (like he's home to see his dad yet barely sees him) and the detectives who grill him at his house over the finding of a body in the garden are two of the most cliched performances of pretend police I've ever had the misfortune to witness. Just totally odd. Add to that some of the cinematography looks extremely cheap (the mother drinking with her kids scene at the beach in particular) and the audio is hard to make out in parts. This is a movie that ‘potentially' could've been really good but instead, it looks like it was put together by a bunch of year 12 students trying to pass their media studies subject. Even the twist at the end is super lame and I'm not sure the bad guy holding the ashes really gives off the sense that maybe the bloke he'd knifed a week earlier shouldn't have been offed. Do yourself a favour and watch something, anything, else 👎 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Audience Member I absolutely loved this movie. It was a refreshing, new feeling and added something the genre desperately needed. It's not one of those cheap, jump-scare flicks that you've seen before. It's something all together different. It has you on the edge of your seat the whole time and it has a beautifully explained backstory. Viewers will also walk away from the movie thinking about what they saw and examining their own lives, which in my opinion is the best type of movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member You can just tell this movie would be good just by watching the trailer and thankfully I was right. The Dunes is a slow burn, intimate story that suddenly descends into mind games and terror. It may take a little patience at first but hang in there, the ride is worth it. Very entertaining and very uniquely executed thriller. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
