Did You Know?


After completing filming, the production crew decided they had produced a movie that did not live up to the original expectations and it would not do well. They decided to remake the movie under the name "The Lost Tribe" with a new director, script and cast. However, the film is being released straight to DVD by "Voltage Pictures". See more »


Gives position as 13 67 55 North longitude and 13 35 57 North latitude. Assuming we use west instead of north we would be in the Senegal desert. Would have been an easy correction if someone involved in production ever used a map or GPS. See more »

Superior Horror Film With Superb Staite Performance
17 July 2015 | by dianerpessler-46164See all my reviews

Director and writer Jorg Ihle has brought all the elements of an exceptional horror film together and fashioned something fresh and unique in cinema. A truly frightening motion picture experience, with an overwhelming atmosphere of unholy dread and tension of an intensity seldom captured on film. Jewel Staite gives an Oscar worthy performance in the role of a young woman who finds herself fighting for her own survival, her lover's, and their companions on a island of pure evil. Creatures pursue them in scenes of relentless horror and she must summon the courage to meet the challenge of unimaginable terribleness. The characterizations are finely developed and as the story progresses, we find ourselves caring deeply for these very richly drawn individuals. No audience member could possibly ignore the plaintive cries of Jewel Staite. They are bone chillingly real, as is the horror under the superb director Jorge Ihle.
