A British documentary crew arrive at a remote Philippine Island to shoot a jungle survival special. Soon the crew witness violent movement through the trees, accompanied by eerie cries and dark figures whipping through the canopy. The crew are unnerved, but determined to finish the job they send their Filipino guides Joey (Joel Torre) and Chill (Natalie Mendoza) into the jungle to seek answers from the native Isarog tribe. However, all they find are dozens of half-eaten corpses. Presenter and survival-skills expert, Seb (Billy Zane) has survived every type of natural threat. But, deep within the primeval jungle and at the mercy of horrifying, shape-changing creatures with a thirst for blood, can he find a way to protect the team and escape with his life?
Ok I maybe a little one sided with this one... but Im going to give this film credit for setting the movie in the Philippines (however it was filmed in South Africa) having friends out in this country, I find it hard to get movies with a Filipino theme in the UK.
The story is based on Filipino folk lore, mixed with some history of when the Japanese made their mark on the country. The movie is similar to any horror where the characters get lost in the woods (well Island/Rainforest) and eventually meet their end!!!
Even though the film isnt the best horror out there, its still more watchable than most
