And now the review from Movie Cafe, posted by Jaccstev:

“The Clinic” (Australia - 2010)
The market for horror films in Australia is, and always has been, unquestionably dominated by American and British products, but since the first “Saw” movie, created by Aussie duo James Wan and Leigh Whannell, spawned a successful gore franchise which is now up to its seventh installment, Aussie horror films are back - and they're stronger than ever. With suitably twisted plot, “The Clinic” by James Rabbitts is also a one to watch Aussie horror this year. The film is slow to get started, but once underway it’s an enjoyable ride. Tabrett Bethell's excellent performance also is the highlight of the film for me. Here’s the synopsis: While travelling across Australia in 1979, heavily pregnant Beth Church is abducted. Waking up in an abandoned abattoir, she’s horrified to find her baby has been removed. Searching the isolated prison for a way out she finds three other women in exactly the same terrifying predicament. And so their deadly game of survival begins Raw psychological horror as SAW meets THE VANISHING with a gripping hereditary twist in director James Rabbitts’ feature debut.
Halloween-meter: 6.5/10
