The rare lost film made and set in Blacktown, Australia?
I had almost forgotten that this film existed until I saw it pop up as the midday movie on TV in 1998. The storyline and stars seemed familar. I remember when this film was being made in Blacktown and there was an article in the local newspaper about this production at the time. It was my understanding that Terry O'Connor was a local who wrote and directed this low budget film.( I suspect that David Hannay salvaged and edited the film as curiously there doesn't appear to be a director's credit on the film.) It was Terry O'Connor's own Jaguar Car which was blown up in East Blacktown Hotel car park. I was surprised to see veteran actor Guy Doleman from the "Ipcress File" in the film and wondered how he came to be cast. David Franklin played a very campy killer, or was he? I was a bit confused as to whether young Joey was involved in the murders and why the spear gun? Was it me or was there a hint of incest between mother and son at the party. the film also starred Jon "Sonny" Blake who was tragically injured in a real life car accident and left permanently brain damaged. Joanne Samuels who played the girlfriend also played Mad Max's wife in the movie "Mad Max". Whatever happened to the kid who played Joey or Terry O'Connor?
Although the acting is terrible, my children and I got a kick out of watching this thriller set in and around Blacktown. Most of the actors were from prominent 1970's soap opera's such as the "Restless Years" and "The Young Doctors".
