This review contains *SPOILERS*

A interesting take on being in the desert without any clue as to what your going to do. This film had breakdown after breakdown of scenes, and one of the worst jump cuts I've ever scene in cinema, which happens at about 14 minutes into this pointless film of a pair of sisters scouting the outback and making bad decisions. The first awesome clip comes at about the 45 minute mark. We see a really cool shot of a man blurred in the background as Maggy turns her head. Myers must of been feeling it that day because this is right on the money. And sadly, this awesome shot is negated by a close up of what we just saw when we see it was a man holding a weapon. So there goes the absence of any kind of horror. This film could've been cool. Though Frank seems to ruin it with his "I'm so manly attitude," and the characters all seem like they have done too many drugs to understand there surroundings. At times, they think they are in the "Wizard of Oz." The sound editing was a cry for help. It sounds like planes are flying overhead, or a military air strip is nearby. What was wrong with the older sister anyways, because the film's visual narrative never says. Nor, do we ever know what happened exactly to Stans family, other than the clues he tells us while driving, after he is abducted away from Frank. I liked the piano music and that seemed to the other thing that worked well as Maggies jealousy issues start to take hold of her. This happens when she sees Jasolyn kissing Stan. And, then more tired jump cuts that we never understand the reason for. I have an idea, let's all sit around and see who gets wasted first, just so the end of the film can be left an enigma. Some neat twists and turns at the end, but far too late. P.S. Myers shouldn't of off'd Frank so early on in this film because what it does for the viewer is shifts our focus all on Maggy, and maybe that is what he wanted.
