The Tunnel

Film poster for The Tunnel

It’s always nice to see a horror movie that’s set on your own doorstep, especially since Sydney rarely seems to be the preferred location of Australian horror filmmakers.   Happily, Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey, writer/producers of The Tunnel, decided to set their film in the mysterious labyrinth of disused railway tunnels extending beneath Sydney— “a whole other city underneath us,” as protagonist Natasha (Bel Deliá) evocatively puts it.  Shot in tunnels at South Head, Garden Island, St James Station and Georges Head, the film follows a TV current affairs crew who, in the course of investigating a state government cover-up, are about to discover something rather nasty lurking in these dark recesses…

It’s well worth a look, and, as you might be aware, the filmmakers have made this especially easy, by rather radically releasing their film as a free download on BitTorrent (a DVD is on sale for the more dedicated).  More background on The Tunnel can be found in my FILMINK story here.
