Film synopsis

A deranged and reclusive stranger delights in dismembering unwary travellers and keeping company with a colony of rats fed on blood.

When a young women crashes into one of this misfit’s ghoulish traps, so begins “an unremitting avalanche of terror” (The Australian) as she  is relentlessly stalked and terrorized! Unseen for over 30 years and originally branded “the film they didn’t want you to see” Night of Fear became Australia’s most controversial movies of the 1970s. The film’s producers fought a running, defiant battle with the censors, after initially being banned outright on the grounds of “indecency and obscenity”
