Description by OLDIES.com:

Attempting to resurrect their failing marriage, Peter (John Hargreaves) and Marcia (Briony Behets) set out on a camping trip to a deserted stretch of the Australian coastline in the hope that a long weekend in the sunshine will help them patch their differences. They are a careless couple, littering the countryside with garbage, shooting guns and even driving away after wounding a kangaroo with their automobile. Their callous disregard for the environment soon becomes apparent when the animals start to seek vengeance. Marcia and Peter have proved themselves to be destroyers of nature. Will the animals allow them to leave or will they be destroyed?

From the writer of Road Games and Razorback comes this "spooky little gem" (Premier Magazine), presented here for the first time in a new anamorphic High-Definition transfer with a re-mastered 5.1 Dolby Digital Soundtrack.

Product Description:

A haunting, ecologically conscious horror film from 1970s Australia, this unforgettable curio will stick with audiences long after viewing. Marcia (Briony Behets) and Peter (John Hargreaves) are a young couple whose marriage is on the rocks. They set out for a relaxing weekend of camping, settling in on an isolated beach where they hope to repair their relationship. It soon becomes apparent, however, that the pair has some unpleasant tendencies, which are manifest in their complete disregard for the environment. After hitting a kangaroo with their car, they leave it for dead, and everywhere they go, they leave a trail of refuse in their wake. Soon, the animals observing this behavior decide that they are not going to take it anymore, and they lash back at Peter and Marcia with a brutal vengeance. Atmospheric and quirky, this creepy gem of a movie delivers a message along with its terror.
