Storyline

In Phuket Island, Thailand, the architect Paul Bellmer and his wife Jeanne lost their son Joshua in a tsunami six months ago. Jeanne is disturbed and has not accepted the loss of her beloved son. While watching some footages from Myanmar (former Burma), Jeanne is convinced that a boy wearing a Manchester United shirt in a poor village is Joshua, and Paul accepts to seek out their son in the sea gypsies camp. They hire the trafficker Thaksin Gao and they travel in the boat of master Sonchai to search Joshua. After a series of weird incidents, Sonchai leaves the trio in an abandoned village. They have to walk through the jungle where they face a journey to hell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Don't waste your time!!!!
11 April 2009 | by ggkielbasaSee all my reviews

The movie actually could have been really good. That is what kept me watching it till the end. The movie starts off good but in the end you find yourself wondering WTF. The movie is listed as a horror. I don't know maybe I am numb to horror movies, but I didn't find anything scary about this movie what so ever. At times the movie can be a little creepy, but by no means scary. There are a lot of drawn out parts of the movie where they appear to be just wasting your time with pointless mundane footage. I found myself fast forwarding though parts to get on with the movie, which I Never do. All in all the movie is kinda like my review. It could of been summed up in a couple sentences, but because I needed 10 lines in my comments I made my review longer. Good news is if you took the time to read my review you won't have to "waste your time" watching the movie. :)
