Suburban Mayhem Review

Image for Suburban Mayhem

Katrina is an anti-social uncontrollable teenage mum, who respects nothing and no-one and needs money to try and get her brother out of jail. To do this, she may even kill her father. The suburbs will never be the same again.


Mixing bleached-out mock documentary footage with pitch-black comedy, this low-budget Aussie effort follows Katrina, a 19 year-old single mum who’s slept her way around town and possibly offed her father.

It’s an intriguing premise, and Emily Barclay is perfectly cast as the scheming protagonist, but all too often it opts for gratuitous tastelessness when a little wit might have worked better.

Not as clever or affecting as it thinks it is.
