Storyline

Peter and Carla have a wasted marriage and constant friction. Peter buys expensive camping gear and, despite the protests of Carla, insists they travel with their dog Cricket to camp on the isolated Moondah Beach in the North Coast with his friend Luke and his girlfriend during the rainy holiday. Peter stops in a pub at the Eggleston Hotel and leaves a message for Luke with the owner of the pub. When Peter takes what he believes to be shortcut to the beach, he gets lost and the couple spends the night sleeping in their SUV. The next morning, Peter organizes the campsite and their intrusion into and abuse of the natural environment begins. During the two days, the couple's relationship deteriorates while the nature avenges the bad treatment the couple has inflicted upon it. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great eerie movie
14 October 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Well, I just saw this movie at a Festival, and really liked it. It's a tour de force for the two actors, which are quite alone in the movie except for the other character, which will be Mother Nature. And a very wicked character she is... I didn't know it was an almost shot-by-shot remake of the 1978 movie, but even though I can't compare since I didn't watch the original one, I would say it's such a great movie that a remake that is able to bring the movie to a new generation of movie-goers can't be a too bad idea. And, even though I certainly sympathize with all those remake-haters out there, didn't "The Departed" just sweep critics and movie-goers alike while being a remake of a very recent masterpiece?... Let's forget about the remake issue, shall we? Why is this a great little movie? It's a low-budget low-profile movie that's just creepy and engaging, and has an eerie feel to it that is just to the point. Any of you city-slickers thinking about going out camping in the long weekend to a secluded beach? Well, don't mess with Nature or else... I did appreciate a movie that's about Nature's revenge without being too eco-conscious, and where in the end all serious wrong being done is done by humans. And all those bits left unexplained, instead of making you feel cheated, are just very intelligent and create a quasi-supernatural feel that's partly "Picnic at Hanging Rock", partly "The Birds", partly "Blair With Project"... It's no masterpiece, whatever that may be, but it's engaging and very scary in a non-conventional way. Some of the images will stick with you for a long time - I had no idea of what a dudong was, but now they scare the hell out of me! Isn't that enough for having a great time watching this?
