Movie Info

A sociopathic insurance investigator embarks upon a sadistic, twisted game of cat and mouse with a manipulative, conniving cheat in this Australian suspense thriller. The whole mess begins when the sick machinations and childish games of Jonathan Wheats get out of hand. One day he and his prankster pal Michael decide to "burglarize" Jonathan's home, steal a priceless silver heirloom, and file a false claim. Unfortunately, Beth, the wife knows nothing of it. She comes home during the "theft" and ends up killing Michael. She is acquitted of wrong-doing so Jonathan decides to proceed with the plan. That's when Roland Copping enters the picture. Roland, whose life was warped by a childhood trauma, is a game player too, and knowing full well that the Wheat's claim is bogus, he methodically begins destroying their lives until Jonathan snaps and decides to fight back.

Critic Reviews for Frauds

All Critics (1)

Offbeat, slightly wacky, a little unnerving, and quite weird, like most Australian films from this era. Think Phil Collins talking into a Lego phone intercut with extreme closeup shots of the woman on the other end. You will either like it or loath it.
