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

Alien in the.desert
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Up-and-coming scientist, Dr. Zach, travels from Canada to Southern Africa where he, along with a group of miners, is tasked to find a trio of missing miners. Two of which they immediately find completely stripped to their bones. The third of which is inexplicably miles away from the other two. Now stranded deep in the desert, the unlucky crew must contend with an aboriginal monster that's stalking their every move.

Offers up some tension and the acting is pretty adequate. I enjoyed the concept behind the monster, but the movie is hamstrung by a less than satisfying climax as well as a worse epilogue.

My Grade: C-
