Storyline

Alicia arrives in South America to vacation with her cousin, Sarah. When Sarah is suddenly called away, Alicia is stuck on a remote island off Chile with three of Sarah'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.

Not like advertised! 3/10
17 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I really wasn't feeling this movie. It takes ages to get going and once the core of the storyline kicks in, it just turns out to be very disappointing. By the end of the movie you question what was the whole point of the project because there isn't any explanation about what the hell was going on. Basically the whole concept of a group of friends going to a remote island for a break and then strange things happen, has been done many times before, but with this movie it tries to be original by making it about a strange girl who has some serious issues and ends up spoiling the whole holiday for everyone else. Personally, I didn't think it was that good, but the acting was convincing and you do stick with the movie to find out the motive. Disappointing!

Round-Up: To be honest, I was expecting a intelligent thriller because of the casting of a Michael Cera, but his movies have gone down a strange avenue of late! With films like Crystal Fairy and a short part in This Is The End, it does make me wonder about his choices of movies. Juno Temple is playing her usual strange self as she has done in movies like Killer Joe, so her performance wasn't that surprising. As for the movie, I do feel a bit cheated by the advertising because it looked more like an horror than a mysterious drama. I also was disappointed with the ending which just didn't make any sense to me.

I recommend this movie to people who are into there teenagers in the woods type of movie about a girl who is loosing her mind. 3/10
