Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This quirky little horror tale makes up for what it lacks in blood and gore with a neat line in suspense. Cliff De Young stars as the puzzled suburbanite who can't work out why household appliances are beginning to attack their owners. Writer/director Paul Golding takes time out to poke some fun at life in the 'burbs and makes ingenious use of the rogue electrical machines.
