Next Of Kin (1982)

Directed by
Tony Williams

One of the great treasures of the Ozploitation wave, Next Of Kin is “Suspiria Down Under”, expertly blending a ghost story, a psychological thriller, a giallo and the desolate Outback’s inherent spookiness to create Australia’s most criminally underseen genre film.

“A horror movie unlike any other… it has a very, very unique tone and the closest equivalent to this tone is The Shining.” – Quentin Tarantino

Linda Stevens, 24, has just inherited a big old house, an evil house. All night she hears a voice that whispers slowly from somewhere deep in the back of her mind. Taps turn themselves on and off. Candles light without a flame being put to them. And just last night she found the corpse of an old man in her bath. The house is called Montclare, and something evil lives there.
