In 1952, New Zealand was shocked by the murder of Honora Parker by her teenage daughter and a schoolfriend. Despite director Peter Jackson's back catalogue in slapstick gore – Braindead, Bad TasteHeavenly Creatures does not dwell on the more lurid details of the crime. Instead, it examines the imaginative fantasy worlds of the girls and the strength of their friendship in a sympathetic light.
