    Not so well known 'modern' Australian slasher about a real estate agent drawn into a spiral of insanity involving ghosts and masked male rapists, amongst other things. By no means a hidden gem, but I think it is much better than its reputation at IMDb.
    Contagion starts out pretty slow but the final 20 - 30 minutes are bloody (at times) and delivers.
    Another one of those that never made it to DVD. Anyone seen this besides me?

    First time poster here, Been a long, long, long time lurker/reader. Joined a few weeks back, though I'd jump in on this one.

    Contagion, I love this one. Have the VHS, but recently transferred the tape to a DVD. There is a [official?] DVD out there on Region 2 I think, but I believe its just a VHS transfer.

    I have it on VHS, and remember enjoying it, but it being completely forgettable. I'm struggling to remember much about it even now. Wasn't there something about a plane towards the end? I had even put my VHS up on eBay a few times with no takers, but I don't have it listed any more.

    Its on my hitlist of films to get if it comes out on disk, but solely based on commentary I read about the film many years ago. Other films on that list are higher priority, and I'm not itching to see it in "any format available".
