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.

Producer

[The Paradise Conspiracy is a] compelling book, one that started out as a TV programme but which got too hot for the original medium [...] a Watergate-type tale that takes the reader through possibly unlawful and certainly immoral offshore deals and what might even have been the contract killing of a crucial participant.
