A small airplane crashes in the sweltering deserts of southern Africa hundreds of miles from civilization. As parallels are drawn between the stranded group of seven passengers and a nearby pack of savage baboons, one of the men's survivalist nature gets the better of him, as he decides his chances of survival would be better if the other men were eliminated one-by-one.Written by

I am like most of the reviewer of this film in that it has been so long since I've had a chance to see it again. I saw this film as a child of 11 or 12. The plane crashes because of a enormous cloud/flight of locusts that so muck up the plane's engines that it cannot sustain the speed to remain airborne. Some of the most memorable scenes for me is when the survivors first find the melons. Then when they finally slay the desert antelope. And, of course the ending is something that you just have to see for yourself. This movie along with another movie, "The Lion" are my two lost movies that I fear that I will go to my grave not owning. How does a person go about pleading to Paramount pictures for the movies to be released on DVD to the public?
