‘Out here you can get away with murder’

Crow Valley is a 2021 Australian thriller film about an injured mountain biker who is held hostage in a cabin by a deranged young woman.

Written, directed by and starring Josh Conn – making his feature debut. The movie also stars Nicole Freeman, Tina Rettke, Peter Murrihy, Jessica Leaming and Isabella Tognon.


Mountain biker Benny Jones (Josh Conn) sets off on a weekend ride to remote Crow Valley but is knocked off his bike in a brutal hit and run.


He wakes badly injured in an abandoned cabin where he meets young hiker Greta (Nicole Freeman). When her lies and sanity start to unravel he finds himself in a desperate fight for survival…


“Conn ratchets up the suspense tantalizingly, increasing tension as the backstories of the cyclist and Greta are slowly — and chillingly — unveiled. The two leads have stirring chemistry together, and both inhabit their characters with gusto […] It’s well shot and directed, with impressive production values.” Horror Fuel


Crow Valley premiered as part of Monster Fest which runs from December 2nd to12th 2021 in Melbourne, Australia.

A March 1st 2022 release is scheduled.
