The storyline is standard exploitation (or raftploitation?) fare but tries for better

Audience Reviews for Damned River

I love me a good rafting adventure (THE RIVER WILD anyone?). The only thing I need to know is, who in their right mind would go rafting in Zimbabwe for fun?! I mean who the hell was their travel agent?

While filmed ok, the acting from these no name actors is high school grade. The American tourists are as naive and as white fool as they come. Four young Americans, on vacation in Africa, test themselves by rafting on the challenging, treacherous rapids of the Zambezi River and find themselves stalked by a pathological killer. The only real test is how to deal with the tour guide. The tour guide is jerk and war psycho and acts as terrible as his customers. Purely for youngest film buffs out there. They might be impressed. The rest of more experieced film goers would be better off seeing an elementary school play.
