Film Details

Wake in Fright

aka Outback
Australia | 1971 | Ted Kotcheff

Wake in Fright

This re-discovered and newly restored “Ozploitation” classic follows an Australian teacher on his way to Sydney for Christmas break who spends one night in a brutal Outback small town. Succumbing to local traditions, the teacher begins drinking and gambling with the rough, uncouth townspeople. Pretty soon he is at their mercy—trapped in a remote, morally bankrupt desert town where macho rituals of womanizing, fighting, and hunting test one’s manhood. Eventually the educator’s civilized exterior falls away, exposing his “heart of darkness” and rendering complete his total degradation. From the director of First Blood and The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. With Donald Pleasance (Halloween). “The best and most terrifying film about Australia in existence.” –Nick Cave. “"It may be the greatest Australian film ever made and is the closest a movie can get to a primal scream." –Rex Reed.
