Umbrella Entertainment will release filmmakers Andrew Traucki & David Nerlich’s critically lauded survival-horror BLACK WATER to Blu-ray in a feature-packed edition on May 5th.
After blazing the international film festival circuit around the world including London’s FrightFest and Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, BLACK WATER was released to Australian audiences in 2008 and quickly became a genre touchstone in local cinema, surpassing the reputations of both ROGUE and DARK WATER.
Heralded by the BBC as “short, sharp and refreshingly nasty” and Time Out as a “scary horror movie [that] makes effective use of one striking location and one strong idea“, BLACK WATER is without a doubt an Australian genre classic worthy of celebration with Umbrella Entertainment’s global Blu-ray debut.

The Making of BLACK WATER
Grace (Diana Glenn, HARROW), her boyfriend Adam (Andy Rodoreda, CARGO) and younger sister Lee (Maeve Dermody, THE SECRET GARDEN) decide to take a river tour whilst holidaying in Northern Australia. As they drift into a mangrove swamp, their boat is suddenly capsized and their guide disappears. Realising they’ve been attacked by a crocodile, Adam drags Grace to the safety of a tree whilst Lee clings on top of the overturned boat. Adam and Grace frantically try and manoeuvre Lee and the boat to the tree but it is firmly stuck. Stranded in the flooded mangrove swamp, the three holiday makers must work out what to do to survive.
BLACK WATER on Blu-ray from May 5th.
