Wake In Fright

Alongside Mad Max and Walkabout, Wake In Fright is widely acknowledged as one of the seminal films in the development of modern Australian cinema. Directed by Ted Kotcheff (First Blood) and starring Donald Pleasence (Halloween, The Great Escape), Wake In Fright tells the nightmarish story of a schoolteacher's (Gary Bond) descent into personal demoralization at the hands of drunken, deranged derelicts while stranded in a small town in outback Australia. Virtually unseen in America and believed to be lost for decades, Wake In Fright now returns in a stunning new HD restoration of what "may be the greatest Australian film ever made" (New York Observer).
