Storyline

Two modern-day treasure hunters go searching for the lost gold of a legendary 1800s outlaw in the remote jungles of Far North Queensland, Australia. But instead of riches, they find a different kind of legend: a ferocious Australian monster known as a Yowie, Australia's answer to Bigfoot, and a savage battle for survival ensues. Thrown into the mix is a park ranger named Rhiannon and a burnt-out ex-homicide detective named McNab. Travis Bain's second feature is a fast-paced, suspenseful adventure/horror movie that pays tribute to B monster movies of yesteryear, ranging from 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' to 'The Legend of Boggy Creek' to John Carpenter's masterpiece 'The Thing', with a healthy dose of 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre' thrown in as well.

Biggest bang for your buck
13 February 2015 | by redemption1880See all my reviews

Saw this at a festival in Arkansas. I'd heard the director fully self-funded the film so had to see for myself. Man, did this fella stretch a buck. Shots, editing, scenery are damn perfect. The story was good enough and the actors did a great job. Loved the cameo by Vernon Wells. Make no mistake, this is a cheap film. But it holds up better than most tinseltown offerings. Hope to see what the team behind this could do with a proper budget. The only thing that bugged me was the stretched out suspense moments. Too much of this going on n last half hour when things should have been racing along. The man-in-suit wasn't fooling anyone but on a budget like this totally forgiven. Everyone in the cinema had a ball watching it. Gonna check the bluray for the ton of extras.
