Savages Crossing is a thrilling Australian horror film that was released in 2010. The movie is directed by Kevin James Dobson, and features a star-studded cast that includes Chris Haywood, Sacha Horler, and Charlie Jarratt. The film is set in a small outback town called Savages Crossing, which is hit by a massive flood that traps a group of people in a local tavern. With the water levels rising and no way out, the group soon realizes that they are not alone.

The movie opens with a shot of the tranquil outback, setting the scene for the disaster to come. We meet a group of travelers who are making their way along a road that is threatened by rising flood waters. Among them are a widowed mother and her young son, a couple traveling in a camper van, and a hitchhiking musician. As they approach the town of Savages Crossing, they come across a road block, manned by a local police officer who warns them not to enter the town as it is about to be hit by a flood.

Despite the warning, the group decides to push on, hoping to make it through the town and to safety on the other side. As they drive through Savages Crossing, the flood waters rise rapidly, causing chaos and destruction everywhere. The roads become impassable, and the group is forced to take shelter in a local tavern owned by a gruff and abrasive man named Jack.

Inside the tavern, the group is joined by Jack's ex-wife, a local artist named Marilyn, and her boyfriend. They all settle in for what they think will be a long wait until the flood recedes enough for them to leave. However, as the night wears on, strange things begin to happen. The group starts hearing strange noises outside, and they soon realize that they are not alone in the tavern.

As tensions rise, the group is forced to confront a mysterious and deadly presence that is lurking in the flood waters. The group quickly realizes that they are not dealing with a natural force of nature, but a murderous force that is hunting them down one by one. With no way out, the group must band together and fight for their survival against an unseen and savage enemy.

The film features some fantastic performances from the cast, especially Horler as Marilyn and Jarratt as the musician. The tension-filled plot keeps the audience on the edge of their seats as the group tries to survive the night in the tavern. The director masterfully builds suspense throughout the film, with slowly building tension and chilling sound effects. The cinematography is also excellent, capturing the ominous and foreboding atmosphere of the town as it becomes engulfed by the flood.

Overall, Savages Crossing is a gripping horror film that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
