And soon it'll be forgotten.
25 September 2016 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Two very attractive but rather undernourished young women, Stephanie and Ellie (Amber Heard and Odette Yustman), are cycling across Argentina when they run into a spot of bother with some nasty locals who are abducting and transporting female tourists into Paraguay for use in the sex trade.

And Soon The Darkness is an Americanised version of Robert Fuest's 1970 British thriller of the same name. I'm okay with that in principle since I imagine the original film hasn't been seen by the vast majority of people, but what I'm not okay with is the inevitable straying from Fuest's film (which was written by Brian 'The Avengers' Clemens and Terry 'Doctor Who' Nation) into typical modern, xenophobic teen horror territory.

As the film progresses, the script becomes more and more predictable, and the characters dumber and dumber, making the film about as mediocre as it could possibly be. Director Marcos Efron makes good use of his rural locale, with an abandoned town providing atmosphere, and gets his two hotties into their bikinis, but my advice is, unless you're a big fan of the girls in question, check out the original instead: it also features two fine looking ladies (Michele Dotrice and Pamela Franklin), but is a much better film.
