Suburban Mayhem 

This interesting Australian film attempts to create an almost Natural Born Killers type of film that highlights the “bogan” culture of those socio-economical suburbs of our continent. The story revolves around Katrina (Emily Barclay) who could be considered the “town bike” as she has a reputation for being easy and it doesn’t help that her appearance also highlights this.

However, when her brother is arrested by the local police for murder, Katrina takes matters into her own hand and engages in a revenged fuelled passion against the powers that be. That is, the government who threatens to take away her daughter and of course her father, the only thing that stands in her way from making money. Thankfully our little vixen only has to batt her eyelids and men will come running to her and thus begins her attack.

Although many movies before have touched on certain elements of this film, what makes it so interesting is the interpretation of the “bogan” society and if you think you have seen all the clichés of these lesser individuals, than you thought wrong.

Suburban Mayhem does have its moments and I don’t want to spoil them for you but my biggest issue with the movie is that some of the plots seem a little disjointed but for what it is, it actually succeeds on most levels.

The video and audio quality of Suburban Mayhem is muted at times and I’m guessing that the director did not want to create a shiny Hollywood experience but images are sharp and dialogue is crisp.

Definitely a movie to check out to see what all the hype is about!
