The Snowtown Murders
($22.49 DVD, IFC Films)

Based on a true story, The Snowtown Murders takes place in a podunk Australian town and centers on troubled 16-year-old Jamie (Lucas Pittaway) who, when not getting sexually violated by his older brother, must deal with his kind-but-alcoholic mother and her new boyfriend, John(Daniel Henshall). It turns out John is actually a psychopath killing local gay men he thinks are pedophiles. It’s not long before John manipulates Jamie into becoming an accomplice in his world of horrors. Grittier and more disturbing than the typical Hollywood thriller, Snowtown is a film you won’t easily forget.
