  2. The credits for this feature film.


Loosely based on the case of a real-life computer dealer who acquired international bank records and later died mysteriously on Auckland Harbour Bridge, Spooked marked Geoff Murphy’s first local feature in 15 years (after a Hollywood foray). Everyman Kevin (Christopher Hobbs) is caught up in a barrage of intimidation after buying some used computer equipment and unwittingly receiving corporate secrets; Mort (Cliff Curtis) is the journalist investigating his case. The cast features rare cameos by director Vincent Ward and Goodbye Pork Pie star Kelly Johnson.

A New Zealand thriller is a very difficult genre because New Zealand’s not a very thrilling place. People are very critical and so they want to be convinced that what you are presenting as being thrilling is actually real, that it could happen. [...] We’re not given to driving around in fast cars with machine guns and bags of heroin, which is fodder for American films. We have to be a lot more inventive, careful and realistic.
