Two best friends Grant and Paul hit the road for a weekend of surfing, booze and hopefully . . . girls. With night falling they take a short cut and meet Lisa and Kelly, a couple of babes with a fast car, who invite them to a party. Lust takes the wheel and a game of cat and mouse begins leading them deep into the heartland of evil where they meet...........The Locals.Written by
When the boys turn off the expressway and come to the sign "West Coast (37)", this is completely in the wrong location. Highway 37 is several hundred kilometers to the south in the Waitomo region. The sign "West Coast (37)" was a prop used at Pokeno, just south of Auckland. See more »
I thought the LocaLs was going to be a sad B-Grade Kiwi horror but it turned out to be the wickedest New Zealand movie ever. I particularly like Dave Gibson's role as Nev the 80's bad guy zooming round in a metallic purple (Ford Escort?). It was ace, his voice is so growly and deep and his kiwi accent is just so ...local. I was a bit worried about the acting from John Barker and Dwayne Cameron at first but as the movie progressed I just started to feel for them...I mean they were just city boys aye? By the time Paul was being forced to dig up those bones I just wanted to jump in there and help him. Awesome. I want to congratulate Dave Gibson in particular I thought he was cracker.
