    • Synopsis
    • Cut Snake is a tense, psychologically-driven crime thriller in which one man discovers his biggest enemy to putting the past behind him is himself.
      It’s the mid-1970s, and Sparra Farrell (Alex Russell), a fiercely private man in his twenties, is trying to make a new life for himself in a new city, to escape a dark and violent past. He finds honest work and becomes engaged to a beautiful girl, Paula (Jessica De Gouw). When the brutal and charismatic Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton) tracks him down, Sparra finds himself falling back into the world that he thought he left behind.
      Ruthless and charming, Pommie becomes the perfect houseguest and drops tantalising hints into Sparra’s mysterious history to Paula, who has no idea about her fiancé’s past. As Pommie exerts his influence over Sparra to lure him back into crime, Sparra realises that he’ll have to fight to keep the past from ruining his future.
      Against a backdrop of betrayal and murder, Sparra is forced to battle not just Pommie, but his own private demons, to save Paula and himself.
