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

Never been physically angry after watching a movie. Till now...
28 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't mind when writers try to twist a plot around and try to surprise people with an unusual ending then fail, but the key word there is TRY! The writer of this script should have his SAG card revoked. I will not give the ending away...but the twist in this movie completely ignored any of the details of the story making the first 93 minutes completely pointless, It is almost like he ran into a deadline to have it done and wrote the last page on his way to the studio. I am so glad I didn't pay money to see this in a theater. I know the team is thrown around a lot, but I don't normally as I have seen some awful movies, BUT this is in my top 5 of worst movies ever.
