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 Central America. Soon after, new life form 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
The film was shot using prosumer level recording equipment, with an on set crew of only seven people: director and camera operator Gareth Edwards, sound operator Ian Maclagan, line producer Jim Spencer, production manager Verity Oswin, a driver, and the two stars (dating each other at the time, now a real-life married couple) Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able. Because they were such a small crew using so simple equipment, the entire production team could fit into one van. See more »

A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters.
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.
