"Chillingly effective NZ True Story"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The events of the Aramoana tragedy in November 1990 are finally told in a film dedicated to those who went through the ordeal. Matthew Sunderland is outstanding as David Gray, a man with a ticking time bomb of powder keg emotion who suddenly snaps and Karl Urban is also great as one of the first officers on the scene. The director builds the tension nicely and really makes you feel engrossed in what's happening. An excellent film.

"Tense, harrowing depiction."
5 stars"

Absolutely harrowing, tense portrayal of the 1990 Aramoana murders. Matthew Sunderland gives a chillingly masterful performance as the enraged, psychotic and almost hermit like gunman who finally snaps and terrorises the small township. Karl Urban is also great as one of the cops who rescues some of the wounded. There is much attention to detail and it comes across as respectful to the people who went through the ordeal without over-dramatising the situation.


On November 13th 1990, in the small New Zealand seaside town of Aramoana, local man David Gray took a high-powered automatic weapon and shot dead 13 people.

It remains the worst mass murder in New Zealand's history.

As emergency services scrambled to reach Aramoana, a handful of young, under-armed local policemen risked their lives trying to find the gunman. Terrified and confused residents were trapped in their homes for 24 hours, not knowing where David Gray was - or if they would become his next victim. There were great feats of bravery on that terrible day - from ordinary people in the most extraordinary of situations.

OUT OF THE BLUE is a gripping and powerful story of courage and survival.
