‘When science ends survival begins.’

The Marshes is a 2018 Australian horror feature film about three young biologists conducting research when they encounter evil.

“These wetlands are a perfect place for characters to become disoriented and lost, and the haunting dream sequences are effective rather than being mere tropes; however, some time-lapse visuals of biological entities remain puzzling regarding their intent.” Diabolique

“Audiences will be challenged at times to go with the film’s divergent path into the slightly surreal. Some narrative ‘dog legs’ recall the occasionally head-scratching developments in the TV hit Lost, yet the cut-and-slice thrills of classic Friday the 13th/Texas Chainsaw Massacre-type entertainment remain ever-present throughout the pic’s second-half.” Screen-Space
