Set in mid 1950s Australia, with the fear of communism in the air and the country's farmlands overrun by a plague of rabbits, the film depicts a long hot summer seen through the eyes and over-active imagination of nine year old Celia. Shaken by the death of her beloved Grandmother, Celia finds herself adrift between the cruel games and rituals of childhood and the incomprehensible world of grown-ups. With monstrous creatures stalking her dreams by night, those imagined terrors blur by day with the banal brutality of the adult world and lead to tragic and shocking consequences. Ann Turner's refreshingly unsentimental debut feature is a dark fable of childhood's end. An enthralling film to rank alongside Lord of the Flies, The 400 Blows and Stand By Me.
An imaginative and somewhat disturbed young girl fantasizes about evil creatures and other oddities to mask her insecurities while growing up in rural Australia. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

What a brilliant way to end not only one of the best Batman adventures but one of the best trilogies which got better with each film.

They go into alittle more detail in the extras... But it is true they tore the old bridge down and put up a new one becouse somone was hiding under the old one waiting for traffic... Alot of creepy stuff way crazier than the movie.

Broadway showtunes, crossdressing, homosexual panic, and nudge-nudge-wink-wink innuendo might have been more of a novelty in, say, the 1980s, but in this day and age simply hauling the old cliches out of the closet and parading them around like you've never seen them before makes for some pretty lazy humor. The overall storyline, which has self-absorbed hero Queer Duck being turned heterosexual via some questionable brainwashing techniques, has some bright moments but largely feels like a squandered opportunity for what could have been a genuinely biting satire. While it may not be particularly hilarious, "Queer Duck" does feature some pleasantly affable characters, and it centers on a sweet-natured message about tolerance that's pretty hard to take issue with.

I've been trying to find the budget/box office revenue for this movie and can't find it anymore. It's a joke. It's an hour and 39 minutes I can't get back in life. Not worth watching..
