Tap the trailer for Australia's gruesome real life serial killer flick Snowtown

Do you guys remember us telling you about a twisted looking Australian flick called SNOWTOWN? We mentioned this 'based-on-a-true-story' shocker a couple times early last year but since then we haven't really heard much. Well now the flick is gearing up to hit DVD over in the UK and to celebrate we've scored a look at the trailer for SNOWTOWN! How do you like them apples?

You can check out the trailer, in all it's gritty suspenseful glory, directly below or over in our videos section. Considering this is based on true events I can dig the real, slow-paced feel to it. It makes the terror that's sure to come that much more intense. Know what I mean? So go ahead and scroll below to tap that shite!

Based on the horrifying crimes discovered in Snowtown, Australia in 1999, where police found dismembered bodies rotting in barrels, SNOWTOWN, which marks Justin Kurzel's directorial debut is a stark journey into the feral subculture of welfare dependence, addiction, domestic violence, brutality and sexual abuse.

Elizabeth Harvey is raising her three boys in Adelaide's poor northern suburbs. After her latest boyfriend displays pedophilic tendencies she takes up with a new man, hoping for security but instead winds up welcoming an even more vicious predator into her home.

John Bunting is the moral compass among a circle of friends who hold self-appointed neighborhood watch meetings at the kitchen table. Fueled by cigarettes and beer they cast judgments on those living around them. Bunting enlists his crew in acts of sadistic vigilantism on those he considers deviants takes Elizabeth's son Jamie under his wing. In a mix of misdirected hero worship and terror, Jamie becomes an accomplice to a spree of torture and murder.

SNOWTOWN is an uncompromising film, focused on the relationship between vulnerable teenager and a father figure who is revealed to be the worst kind of bully.

Coming from director Justin Kurzel and starring Louise Harris, Daniel Henshall, Lucas Pittaway and Craig Coyne, SNOWTOWN is set to hit DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK on March 19th. Hopefully a US release date will be announced soon.
