Gruesome survival horror from New Zealand.
20 June 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Set in New Zeland's wilderness "Bridge to Nowhere" takes place in and around an actual unfinished bridge which was abandoned in the mid-1920s. Five obnoxious and noisy teenagers head into the woods to cross the bridge and set the camping.Unfortunately local mountain dweller is not happy to see them.He decides to hunt down the kids like animals and the blood begins to flow."Bridge to Nowehere" is a tense survival horror with some exciting stalking scenes and a bit of nasty violence.The villain is an interesting character as is his mentally unstable girlfriend.If you are a fan of "Deliverance","Rituals" or "Just Before Dawn" check out this unjustifiably forgotten survival classic with beautiful and lush scenery of North New Zealand.9 out of 10.
