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. Written by The Massie Twins

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 »

Really good movie
7 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I rated this movie a 10 to help bring it up from the injustice by others. I really don't rent movies rated lower than 7 because they're usually so bad but I'm really happy I still gave this one a shot.

I never got bored and and there are twists you don't see coming. I do not understand the low ratings and insults aimed at the viewers who enjoyed this thriller!

I bet it would have been rated higher if it had more established actors. All the main actors are believable and several scenes will keep you interested enough to get into the characters and their personalities. Any questions you have along the way will eventually be answered.
