There will be some spoilers in the rest of this review so if you read on you have been warned.( However please save yourself the pain and don't watch this.)
This movie follows a group of "friends" that are on a camping trip to study some ancient cave paintings. They arrive at a cave where they enter and one of the girls has to get out and drive around the mountain that the cave cuts through. When they arrive two of the kids are in a relationship start having sex in a tent that they have just set up. This is happening when their other friends are siting outside the tent. It a strange scene. At some point they all go and look at the painting that they were here for. 4 of the 6 kids go back to there camp and the two that stay are attacked by a rabbit with crazy sharp teeth. After this they go back to the camp and eat. One of the girls deciding she wants to go swimming in the pond that she has no clue what is in it. As she gets out she screams because she has a bunch of leeches on her body. She then is exposed to this sickness and the confusion starts. That is the start of the movie. That is as far as i'll go with the review except I have to address the three parts/aspects of the movie I hated the most. The fist is a part at the beginning of the movie where they show a flashback of this sickness taking place before to another group of people. It is only shown for 15 seconds at most, but is never explained. Secondly the insane amount of stupidity in this group of people. Lastly is the ending because it involves a tentacle rape scene and an attempted tentacle rape scene and it is why I give the movie only a .5.
In conclusion don't watch this movie it is physically painful to watch.
When a group of campers head to the outback, a couple get afflicted with a primal desire to kill and maim. The basic gist is exactly as anyone who has seen a horror movie will think, except for one extremely weird scene at the end that I won't spoil, but doesn't really fit with the rest of the narrative.
Still, for an Aussie spook movie, it isn't bad.
By-the-numbers gore horror with nothing new to add at all. There is much worse low-budget horror out there, but there is also much better.
Anja, Krew, Lindsay, Kris, and Warren take a trip to the outback led by Dace. They are looking for cave paintings that have not been spotted for 120 years. Anja has some drawings left to her by an uncle from the 19th century. The group finds the site with little incident.
Anja clearly has trepidation about when she reaches the opening of the cave. She has something akin to a panic attack and passes out after cutting herself by incidental contact with the rocks. Unfortunately, the blood of her family has been shed, which goes into the ground and the nearby water. This dooms the party...or does it? That is what the rest of this short film is about.
They get about viewing the rock paintings, taking notes, and shooting photographs. The local fauna (mosquitoes, rabbit) seem to find them tasty. The dead rabbit had some fierce looking teeth, which should have been a clue. Mel's skinny-dipping had some bad side effects. When she came out, there were leeches all over her; that evening she gets a fever and her teeth start falling out.
They try leaving, but the local wildlife have somehow disabled their SUV. By the next morning, Mel's teeth and personality have been replaced. She starts biting, which makes matters worse.
Will anyone get out alive? If so, will they be regular humans?
Cinematography: 7/10 Fine for the most part, except for interludes of very jerky camera motions.
Sound: 7/10 The actors were adequately miked. The incidental music did not add much to the film.
Acting: 2/10 Wil Traval was OK, The rest of the actors I could have done without.
Screenplay: 4/10 This was a 15 minute story stretched to 84. The monster-human interludes were frequently boring and always unbelievable.
SFX: 4/10 Those monster teeth look like they could never work at all.
Wrote this before the end, last 30 wasn't too bad actually!
