The most disturbing thing about this film isn’t the bloated corpse or multitude of ghost sightings, but the emotional tug-of-war between obsessively remembering a loved one and letting go, the complete lack of closure slowly chipping away at one’s psyche as one desperately clings to delusional false hopes. Lake Mungo feels like a blend of family melodrama and ghost story, gradually interweaving the paranormal dread with the dark vicissitudes of the seemingly idyllic existence of the average suburbanite.
