Film / Van Diemen's Land

Go To
Van Diemen's Land is a 2009 Australian historical film about the escaped convict and serial killer Alexander Pearce (Oscar Redding). When he and a group of fellow prisoners (Arthur Angel, Paul Ashcroft and Mark Leonard) escaped into the bush in 1822, Pearce killed and ate his friends to survive.

Also based on the Pearce story is the 2008 film Dying Breed, a horror film focusing on Pearce's modern day Cannibal Clan descendents (who are just one of the many reasons not to go to Tasmania for a holiday).
