Austrlian horror films have a good track record (at least in my book). The best ones like 'Wolf Creek' however don't rely on the supernatural. The Austrlian people and their country are very dangerous and can make for great characters, especially in horror. 'Lemon Tree Passage' relies far too heavily on the supernatural, more than any film should. It starts off as a story about an urban legend based on a long strip of road and by the end is something else entirely (what I'm not exactly sure). The writing is so poor throughout that it's almost impossible to get a grip on exactly what is happening and why.
There aren't a lot of frights at any stage of the movie. The opening scene is bizarre and poorly directed and things don't get any better from there. From a very early point it becomes hard to care about the fate of any of the characters. The only one with any personality isn't in it for long and the rest really have nothing going for them. There's no time spent creating any tension is any scene and the suspension of disbelief is far too great to ever buy into (or care) about the story that's trying to be told here. A real misfire.
