Storyline

For their honeymoon, newlyweds Cliff and Cydney head to the tropical islands of Hawaii. While journeying through the paradisaical countryside the couple encounters Kale and Cleo, two disgruntled hitchhikers and Nick and Gina, two wild but well-meaning spirits who help guide them through the lush jungles. The picturesque waterfalls and scenic mountainsides quickly give way to terror when Cliff and Cydney learn of a grisly murder that occurred nearby and realize that they're being followed by chance acquaintances that suspiciously fit the description of the killers.

Trivia

When Nick (Timothy Olyphant) is talking to Cliff (Steve Zahn) about his past life events, he references a dictator's palace (00:30:35) that has a lock-box. In that box he has 'Avenger' memorabilia (00:31:49). The specific one he mentions is 'Iron Man' (00:31:48). Olyphant was considered for the role of Iron Man (2008). Subsequently, Kale (Chris Hemsworth) would later become 'Thor' in the adaption of the Marvel comics and again in The Avengers (2012) movie. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, Gina receives a phone call from a supposed AT&T rep asking "about her long distance". 1) In the US, the cell phone carrier either provides or arranges the long distance. The customer has no choice. 2) Doing business in the US, AT&T is required by federal law to subscribe to a frequently updated list of numbers assigned to cell phones. The same law severely restricts who they can make telemarketing calls to. In short, AT&T's long distance division would never call her cell phone asking about long distance. See more »

Nice, but with disturbing character inconsistency
21 October 2009 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

First the pros - 99% of the movie was shot in daylight in the beautiful Hawaiian nature, really relaxing to the eyes. Good cast, good acting overall. Interesting story, which actually pulled my attention and made me watch the movie. The promised twist was there and was a big one, but more about it in cons... Cons - Well, the promised "twist" was a huge and unexpected one. So unexpected it was really difficult to believe. It made me wondering like "Wow, wait a minute! Weren't they doing this and this a few minutes ago? Didn't they tell this and this? Ehmmm.... they actually did, so what the...?" The script wasn't really finished (well) IMHO, it made me feel like the story was born during writing the script, but after finishing it there was no time/will to rework the beginning and synchronize it with the end. This made the lead characters really inconsistent and left me quiet unsatisfied after the movie ended, even if I have to say the final action sequence was good enough.
