Tense to the end - enthralling.
4 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Saw this movie on cable. Initially looked dull, but drew me into the story with its unnerving, dark intensity and sense of something horrible coming at any moment. It casts a morbid spell that makes it hard to look away. Spellbinding is not an over statement - almost hypnotic in its attraction. The cast was superb. Olympia Dukakis seemed to be the well of emotions and is consumed in this dance of insanity and death in a steaming jungle. Relationships were played out to a dreadful completeness. The next unspeakable horror became expected, but never quite predictable. No, predictable is not part of the story line. A horrible side of humanity certainty is. I gave it a 9 out of 10.
