Next of Kin (1981) — not to be confused with the Patrick Swayze masterwork — is the most underrated Aussie thriller ever. Taking its inspiration from the giallo genre and Kubrick’s The Shining, director Tony Williams creates a thickly foreboding atmosphere with beautifully crafted cinematography and an enormously creepy location; an old folks’ home. Below is an example of its spine-chilling goodness — a truly nightmarish dream sequence. If you’ve not seen Next of Kin, drop everything and watch it now!
