Storyline

Alicia arrives in South America to vacation with her cousin, Sara. When Sarah is suddenly called away, Alicia is stuck on a remote island off Chile with three of Sara's friends, including Brink, an American exchange student with a sadistic streak. Bewildered, frightened, and unable to sleep, Alicia's reality becomes a nightmare from which there is no waking. Ancient indigenous rites, disturbing animal behavior, and captivating hypnotic trances come together in an intense exploration into the darkest corners . . . when the games go too far, reality unravels with astonishing and deadly consequences.

More tragic than magic...
12 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

SPOILERS What we have here folks, is a mystery without a pay-off. On a vacation to South America with her best friend, a young student starts acting VERY bizarre. I won't give you a full list, but her symptoms include putting her hand in a fire, being terrified of dogs, imagining events like noises at night and phone conversations, and going into a bloke's bedroom at night to push his head... in fact, we better leave it there.

Her mate is a bit of a jerk too, as she leaves this nervous, stricken young woman with five complete strangers for a couple of days when she goes back to college to complete an exam. That's empathy for you. Our heroine has nothing to do aside from watch her friend's friends go hunting for defenseless birds, abandon sick puppies in the wilderness, and dive off a cliff into the ocean, while tolerating one chap's pathetic sexual come-ons. I'd probably crack up too. But this strange illness has nothing to do with any of that...

So, what is it? Well, judging by the ritual the natives hold near the end, it MUST have something to do with the supernatural. But is there ANY clear indication how she got it, or why it manifests itself as it does? Nope. In fact, we're not even sure she's alive in the final scene. Some would say you should use your imagination as to what this curious disorder could be, but to me that would be letting the director and writer off the hook. It's all very well to have Juno Temple behaving like a loon for 90 minutes ( a very fine job she does of it too) but without some firm answers as to WHY, it all feels a little inconsequential and silly.

Some films can be left open to interpretation, due to the richness of the screenplay and the talent behind the camera. Here, we NEED more. We don't get it. Therefore, I cannot recommend. 5/10
