Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over North America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...... Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border. Written by Annon

Trivia

The film was shot opportunistically, with little to no outline of scenes and their direction. The two actors were given a general outline of scenes and simply interacted with one another and the other cast members, all whom are not actors. All the scenes and shots were opportunistic as well.

Goofs

At the start of the film, in "San Jose, Central America" we see a sign showing "US Border 200km". The shortest distance between the Central American border (Mexico/Guatemala) and the US Border is approximately 1,700km. See more »

A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters.
17 May 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters. The film starts off a bit gimmicky - with some Cloverfield like action sequence, then it settles into the main storyline, and slowly builds on the characters, and places, the emotional landscape they experienced. It almost reminded me of "Motorcycle Diary" but with occasional monsters. Actings were superb, very natural, not forced with main characters undeniable likeness to Skeet Ulrich & Cameron Diaz.

The pacing of the movie is quite slow at times, definitely not for people looking for action. The special effects are sprinkled sparingly throughout the movie, where its needed to great effect. All in all, an engrossing, quiet movie to enjoy.
