Okay, we know for sure American filmmakers can't get it right, so maybe the Aussies? I mean, they have served up some fine cinematic noir these past ten years, but...I don't know. It seems so attractive, but plugging in surfing as a movie's primary backdrop always...ALWAYS...becomes camp. I mean, really, the first forty seconds of the trailer and "ripped from true events"? WTF is that? You goddamn kooks. I dare you to cite the exception. Okay, maybe this, but---God--who came up with the title? Did they just mail that in or what? Onward.
KIERAN SHEA’s fiction has appeared in dozens of venues including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, Dogmatika, Word Riot, Plots with Guns, Beat to a Pulp, Crimefactory, and Needle: A Magazine of Noir ...as well as in some beefy-looking anthologies most of which will make you question the tether of his shiny, red balloon. To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.
