The second episode for our horror theme was selected by Corey (@coreyrstarr). Lake Mungo (2008) was directed by Joel Anderson and stars Rosie Traynor, David Pledger, and Martin Sharpe. Neither Corey nor Jonathan (@berkreviews) had seen it prior, but both were slightly impressed. The film takes on the look of a documentary and is not what one might expect from a horror film. This movie leans heavy on the drama but lingers with the viewer after it ends.
Next episode: The Exorcist (1973)
Jonathan decided it was time to revisit a movie that traumatized him as a child. After seeing the film he would lay in bed terrified that it would begin shaking at some point. Both of them have technically seen it, but not for a long time. It’s, friend of the podcast, Matt Hudson’s favorite film so that helped push Jonathan passed his childhood fears and add it to the month.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
