Mon­day, 10.50pm, Mas­ter­piece Movies This scary film, made in 2005 and star­ring John Jar­ratt, was nom­i­nated for seven AFI Awards. It tells the story of three young back­pack­ers — Kristy, Ben and Liz — trav­el­ling through the out­back. When their car breaks down, a stranger, Mick, stops to of­fer help then takes them cap­tive. If the plot sounds fa­mil­iar, think the 2001 mur­der of Bri­tish back­packer Peter Fal­co­nio, who was trav­el­ling with his girl­friend Joanne Lees when he was ab­ducted in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances. His body was never found, but Bradley John Mur­doch was con­victed of his mur­der in 2005. Some crit­ics found it too vi­o­lent. Not for the faint-hearted.
