The Snowtown Murders reminds us that sometimes evil is immediately recognizable, but at other times it comes bearing bacon and beer.

The film is a chilling study of an evil, dominant personality and his victims. It works primarily through an astonishingly good performance by Daniel Henshall as Bunting.
Only the truly ghoulish will find any pleasure in Snowtown, Justin Kurzel's well-crafted but hard-to-watch true-crime debut.
The result is a movie that can be admired in many respects from a distance but is progressively less emotionally engaging.
This slog adds up to nothing other than the shocking truism that average people will do horrible things primarily because someone tells them to.
