After the murder of his wife, vegetarian restaurant chef and critic Matt pursues an online relationship with Callie who owns a guest house on an island. Problems occur when he arrives on the isolated island, to the surprise of Callie, to find she lives there with her strange sisters Lydia and Tess. Guests begin to disappear one by one and when Matt's friend and fellow chef, Ryan, turns up after receiving a strange text message, it soon becomes clear that all is not what it seems and he can't trust ANYONE on the island.Written by
Not a blood and gore type of film but overall I enjoyed the movie. I had no problem with most of the acting and 99% of the cast were complete unknowns with C T Howell in there to sell it. The story is an update of the mythological Sirens story. I got the feeling something was cut out of the film because somewhere in the middle of it as the story doesn't make sense. A couple of the characters just seem to vanish without any story and hen later appear dead and it's a bit like a cop out. If you like gory horror then I don't recommend the film because you won't like it but if you like a creepy, atmospheric stuff then it might float your boat. Ignore the user who goes on about it looking shitty, the film looks glossy and the locations are amazing. The acting is actually pretty decent and most of the actors are New Zealand or British. Some people might find it boring in contrast to other films of the same genre. No nudity, no sex, some bad language and unoffensive bloody violence.
