Desperate to make the film that will crown him the next Tarantino young filmmaker Kurt Michaels travels 8000 miles deep into the lost outback of Tasmania to retrace the voyage of his ancestor. Guided by a cryptic handwritten journal Kurt, his buddy and producer Brian and their entourage search for the dark secret his ancestor determined never to reveal. Lost, haunted and terrified they discover themselves pawns in an ancient vendetta
David Davidson, in his directional debut plus crew, made an enjoyable suspenseful horror film. I love it when horror movies are shot in a found footage technique, it implies a suspense build-up. The story is about a young desperate filmmaker who wants to finish what his ancestor started by making it his first feature film while unaware of what he was getting into. The way the movie starts doesn't easily capture one's attention not only it was weak but in its introduction, the main character establishes what we are about to watch intended to have a double meaning of what the viewers are going to expect and it made it look too forward. I thought it was going to be a terrible movie but it sneakily lured me in. There weren't many chills, but It had the right kind of level of suspense in which I enjoyed and with it kept me engaged. This movie also captures a sense of what filmmakers do to achieve what they want and what lengths some would take to get what they desire.
The composer Riley Lee was spot on, the music created the horror atmosphere at the right suspenseful scenes.
The actors' performances were well acted, especially Bella McDiarmid. She was magnificent and being this her first lead feature film, what a natural and I was so drawn to her emotions. I'm looking forward to more of her performances.
Final Score: [6/10]
