Based on the true story of serial killer John Bunting, who along with coerced associates, murdered 12 people in South Australia between 1992 and 1999.
Known as the ‘Bodies in the Barrels’ murders, Bunting and his associates killed victims at various locations over South Australia, storing them in barrels filled with hydrochloric acid.
In early 1999, Bunting moved the barrels to a disused bank vault in Snowtown, a small quiet town 145km outside Adelaide.
Attracting the attention of police, the vault was raided, and shortly after the horrific discovery of 8 bodies in 6 barrels in Snowtown became one of Australia’s worst serial murder cases in history.
Taking the point of view of young, impressionable Bunting associate Jamie Vlassakis, who later turned star witness for the prosecution, the film focuses on several of the murders, as Bunting charms and intimidates his way into the lives of future associates, and future victims.
