Incident at Raven's Gate
An impressive combination of genres - part supernatural thriller, part science fiction, part psychological drama - Rolf de Heer's tale of an alien encounter in the Australian outback plays out with a grim sense of humour.

A director who can never be accused of making predictable or conventional films, de Heer handles the transitions between domestic tension and supernatural horror with flair.

Strong performances and a particularly imaginative use of sound contribute significantly to the build of dramatic tension toward a frightening and bizarre climax.
