Two best friends Grant and Paul hit the road for a weekend of surfing, booze and hopefully . . . girls. With night falling they take a short cut and meet Lisa and Kelly, a couple of babes with a fast car, who invite them to a party. Lust takes the wheel and a game of cat and mouse begins leading them deep into the heartland of evil where they meet...........The Locals. Written by
When Grant and Paul leave their house at the beginning, the scenes of them driving are completely out of order. The first shot shows them very close to the Auckland CBD, followed by them driving down State Highway 1 in the country (nearby Rangiriri), then passing under the Papakura Motorway bridge (part of Auckland), back again on the SH1 country road and past the Japanese bus they encounter, until the car turns off at Pokeno (which is much further north of Rangiriri and just south of Auckland) to head west.

Are you coming to the party?
Of course we're coming to the party.
Then just head back that way, it's a left, and a right...
Follow us, if you think you can keep up.

If Hollywood had made this movie (and smoothed out some hitches that presumably came with a low budget) the critics may well have been raving about it.
In many ways it could have been another 'The Others'.
Most of the acting is quite acceptable for a low budget horror movie; the photography is very well done and the script itself is ambitious and doesn't miss by much, which is saying something. Some of the foreshadowing is top notch.
Either way well worth watching and miles ahead of so much Hollywood horror pap!
As ghost stories go this was relatively original and will be appreciated by those looking for something different.
