Frank John Hughes,
Beth (Vinessa Shaw) and Francis (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), a young married couple, are on holiday together when they venture to a beautiful, but highly remote, island. Beth is pregnant and the two are hoping to enjoy their last vacation before their baby is born. When they arrive, they notice that while there are plenty of children present, the adults all seem to be missing. Initially attributing this to the after effects of a recent festival, they quickly realize something far more sinister is afoot. The two will face terror and unsettling difficult decisions in their quest to make it off the island alive. Written by
This movie is sold as a terror movie. I am not sure what the director wanted to accomplish, but I'm sure it was not terror. Maybe is terrifying to ever want to see a movie directed by him. They paint a picture of the American tourist as if they were dumb and wouldn't recognize signs of danger. After all of this time, and all of what has happened in our world, you really think a couple of tourist will behave like this? The movie also lacks complete story and foundation, there is no background as to why the main characters want to come to this "misterious island", who are they, how they came to where we found them at the beginning of the story. A magnificent Mexican actor appears giving the hope that the movie will rise and some emotion will come, something fearful. NOTHING. Terrible story, terrible acting, terrible direction. The only good thing is the location. But is not worth your time. Buy a post card.
