Movie Info

Screenwriter turned filmmaker Jonathan Hensleigh (The Punisher) delivers a tale inspired by true events that follows two couple's trek through the cannibal-infested jungles of New Guinea in search for Michael Rockefeller, the lost beneficiary of the Rockefeller estate whose fabled to still be living in the wild after his disappearance during a 1961 expedition. Reportedly holding more than a few ties to Ruggero Deodato's cult jungle gross-out Cannibal Holocaust, Hensleigh's film stalled in distribution limbo after making its rounds on the festival circuit.

    If your somebody who thinks that Cannibal Holocaust would have been a better movie, if almost nothing had happened in it, then this one's for you! At only 82 minutes this film feels endless. All characters are worthy of your hate. Script is generic and pales in comparison to Cannibal Holocaust (or any of the other Cannibal greats for that matter). I could go on but I don't care to. There is little good to say about this one. Their hearts seemed to be in the right place but unfortunantly they brought nothing new to the table. Easily passable.

    Another camcorder fouind footage, and while not hitting heights of REC paranormal activity or cloverfield, it does to a degree feel closer in style to inspirational, The blaire witch project. and it rolls along nicely. nice banter from the guys. and moments. its not scary, but its decent enough

    What?s going on, why have I run into a run of loser films, that?s exactly what this is a loser film, 4 students are running around the jungles of PaPa New Guinea looking for David Rockefeller, and its one of those someone is carrying the camera films, I wanted to turn it off so many times, only flixster kept me going 1/2 a star. Can You Say LOSER

    One for the trailer made it look much better category. It's a mix of Blair witch project and Turistas (Paradise lost). Told in hand held cam format as two couples head into the jungle looking for a long lost heir to the Rockefeller fortune. Very slow to start and quite bleak, by the end you don't care what happens to them. Only gets gory for the last 15 mins or more. One for camcorder horror fans only really.
