Storyline

After three of its employees have been reported missing in the Southern African Namib desert, the Eland Mining exploration company mounts a search and rescue expedition, comprising more employees which team up with Dr. Zach Straker, who researches extreme survival systems. Amidst the moving sand dunes they find human bones with just some blood on it, and identify them to belong to two of the missing men; then these disappear again, and they observe a strange monster, which according to a native former herdsman is known by the local people as Esikhulu. It's able to (dis)appear, survive shotgun hits, fatally 'incorporate' human bodies -picking them off one by one- and make water turn acid... Written by KGF Vissers

Original Monster
26 October 2003 | by (Costilla, NM) – See all my reviews

The plot seemed to follow the science fiction standard of a group of people on a mission that encounters something that wants to eat them. The group consists of a scientist, a pretty girl, a "native" person with native knowledge or the extranormal, a macho dolt, a capable and intersting middle age woman, and a non-descript guy who is the first to go. So far this follows movies like "The Angry Red Plantet" and "Alien". The monster or the opposing life form (hey, I can be P.C. and inclusive) is original and interesting. The acting is basic and the direction uninspired. The plot has some moments of stupidity that interrupt the suspension of disbelief because no one would do what they did given the character's circumstances; e.g. abandon the broken down truck with all their supplies in the midst of a big desert after the search plane spots them. I am assuming the actors are all South African (excepting the American scientist)or they are better actors than I imagined. They have the accents down pretty good and fooled me. I was particularly impressed with Adrienne Pierce who plays "Magda" - a nice looking, somewhat older than Brittany Spears, strong willed woman who drives the big Mercedes four wheel drive truck that serves as the "space ship" used to wander around the desert. She is kind of a sunburned "Ripley" character.

I enjoyed the film and recomend it to those who enjoy this genre. I would like to see more of Adrienne Pierce.
