It’s Friday, KFC night and the last days of school before Christmas. Kyle, Jessie and baby brother Troy are waiting in the car for their mum. Kyle broods in the front seat with visions of Sony Play Station dancing in his head while Jessie begs him for a game of eye spy and a trip to the toilet to pee. As night closes in, the shopping centre shuts down, their mum still hasn’t come and the baby just won’t stop crying.

“Like the best horror film, it is what is not shown and not explained here that is the most frightening and horrifyingly disturbing.” Rose Huxley, Scene Magazine
