He's in pest control. The pests are human; specifically, pornographers.
And though the name badge on his denim work dungarees says 'Christian',
his ethical sensibilities have more in common with the Old Testament
than with turning the other cheek.
The apocalyptically titled 'The Horseman' is the latest in a galloping
line of 'vigilante dad' films stretching back to Ingmar Bergman's 'The
Virgin Spring', in which a father, usually a divorcée or widower, made
nutty by grief, ruthlessly picks off those responsible for violating
and/or offing their daughters, nieces or wives. 'What would you do?'
these films ask, like a caring Dr Miriam Stoppard. Before supplying the
answer in the voice of Michael Winner: 'blow their balls off, dear!'
In Paul Schrader's 'Hardcore', for example, George C Scott's
single-parent Calvinist makes merry hell in the porn pits of Los
Angeles, after spotting his runaway daughter Kristen in a blue movie.
While in Steven Soderbergh's 'The Limey', Terence Stamp's ex-con
investigates his daughter Jenny's suspicious death in - where else -
LA, leaving a trail of dead heavies behind him. While the 2006 Danish
animation Princess sees a former missionary taking bloody revenge on
those contributing to his porn star sister's sordid demise. Charles
Bronson, especially, has form here: in 1958's 'Gang War', his
mild-mannered maths teacher becomes self-appointed judge, jury and
executioner when his wife is murdered by mobsters. While in 1974's
'Death Wish', his mild-mannered architect (was anyone buying this, by
the way?) turns squinty-eyed vigilante after muggers rape and kill his
wife and daughter. To lose one family to muggers may be regarded as a
misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness, as Oscar Wilde
observed, before Bronson shot him.
The common denominator for many of these films - or to put it another
way, the movie they're half-inching their plots from - is Mike Hodges'
Britcrime classic 'Get Carter', the daddy of 'relative retribution'
movies, in which Michael Caine's one-man murder-machine avenges the
death of his brother and the virtual rape of his niece Doreen, coerced
into a stag flick called 'Teacher's Pet' by the plum-faced fellow who
went on to pull pints for Arthur and Terry at The Winchester.
In The Horseman the anonymously-posted porn video goes by the lovely
name of 'Young City Sluts II', whose leading lady Jesse latterly
resides in an urn in her dad's van, having expired on a tide of booze,
opiates and bodily fluids post-shoot. If nothing else, this film
underlines the fact that human ashes do not look in the least like
fine, velvety sand; they look like kitty litter. Roving through rural
Queensland, Christian (Peter Marshall) attempts to restore the karmic
balance, leaving the distributor, director and performers with faces
resembling bowls of peach melba, and a shortfall of testicles. A scene
in which one leery larrikin has fishing hooks threaded through his
Niagaras nearly rivals Hard Candy for leg-crossing trauma.
"Ozzie boys terrorising each other!" is how Quentin Tarantino describes
the golden era of Australian exploitation movies in Mark Hartley's
fantastic documentary Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story Of
Ozploitation! And Steven Kastrissios's unflinching debut feature is
just that: a riper slice of old school-style Ozploitation you could
hardly wish for. However, as Tarantino also emphasised, "The reason you
watch exploitation cinema is to have those moments when you're like,
'is this actually happening?! Am I actually seeing this?!'" And the
first time The Horseman whips up a skull-soufflé with the
conversational end of a crowbar, it might well make you blink, or at
least reconsider seeking employment with the adult film industry. Yet
within the first half-hour The Horseman finds itself trotting up a
This is bum-numbingly repetitive stuff: the Horseman locates target,
and the lumbering Ocker-Beasts roll around on the floor, until the
Horseman finally gets the better of his opponent with something blunt.
Repeat six times until the audience relinquishes the urge to exist or
becomes fixated on a rogue popcorn husk stuck in the back of the
It's a real pity, because buried among the endless stabbings, gougings
and nipple abuse (not to mention an unlikely scene when our middle-aged
anti-hero dispatches three muscled twentysomethings single-handedly)
there's clearly a classier movie struggling to get a word in edgeways.
Aside from a solid central performance by Marshall as the deeply
troubled, self-harming anti-hero, there's some interesting, complex
stuff surrounding issues of culpability (Jesse, we discover, entered
the industry entirely of her own volition), some fine technical
flourishes, and good, naturalistic rapport between Christian and the
young hitchhiking runaway Alice (Caroline Marohasy) he meets on the
road, and with whom he comes to share an ersatz father-daughter
relationship; a plot strand which also turns up in Hardcore - the
ultra-devout Jake Van Dorn striking up a similar bond with Season
Hubley's young hooker Niki.
So while The Horseman mightn't be the most accomplished entry in the
recent New Wave of Australian horrors (see also Greg McLean's 'Wolf
Creek' and 'Jamie Blanks' 'Storm Warning') this isn't to suggest it's
altogether bound for the knacker's yard. There's enough potential here
to suggest director Kastrissios is definitely a name to watch. He just
needs to trust the fact that audiences are just as interested in
characterisation and narrative as in seeing white walls repeatedly
decorated with 'Neural Mist' by Dulux.
