Having gone for a day trip Victoria Park, Paul (Melanie Lynskey) and Juliet (Kate Winslet) carry out their plot to murder Paul's mother.
Distracting her mother by pointing out a jewel on the ground planted by Juliet, Paul takes out a brick in a stocking and beats her mother to death…
Peter Jackson Speaks:
"We went to the [
] murder site, and we just felt uncomfortable about filming there. It was very strange, and maybe it was just our imagination, but it was very quiet, very tranquil.
"I mean, all the way down the path you hear the wind and the birds, and suddenly, when you arrive at the spot, you hear nothing. So we filmed the murder scene at Victoria Park, but it was on a different track, about a hundred yards away."
