The Tunnel is a 2011 Australian horror feature film directed by Carlo Ledesma, and co-written, co-produced and co-edited by Julian Harvey and Enzo Tedeschi. The movie stars Bel Deliá, Andy Rodoreda, Steve Davis, Luke Arnold, Goran D. Kleut and James Caitlin.
It is a documentary-style horror story set in the underground network of abandoned railway tunnels in Sydney, Australia.
In 2007 the New South Wales government suddenly scrapped a plan to utilise the water in the disused underground train tunnels beneath Sydney’s St James Train Station.
In 2008, chasing rumours of a government cover-up and urban legends surrounding the sudden backflip, investigative journalist Natasha Warner led a crew of four into the underground labyrinth. They went down into the tunnels looking for a story until the story found them…
In March 2012 it was announced that a sequel to The Tunnel is planned. The project is called The Tunnel: Dead-End and circles around a sibling who searches for her brother who got lost in the tunnels. Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey are back to write the script. So far the sequel is yet to be filmed…
“The most accomplished aspect of the writing is the film’s carefully nurtured sense of dread, built shot by shot. But the performances are also excellent, a solid ensemble piece which uses both the veracity of TV crew interactions and personality elements.” Urban Cinefile
“Watch this one with the lights down and surround sound if possible. Its got solid scares, a location that nightmares are made, a great cast and a very creepy, mysterious killer. As horror fights for new ideas and concepts, returning to old ones is a given. When they’re executed this well, its very hard to complain.” The Horror Hotel
