While on a trip of a lifetime in the spectacular Chilean lake district, young American traveller Alicia (Juno Temple) begins seeing disturbing images visible only to her. Her best friend Sarah (Emily Browning) suddenly returns to Santiago, leaving Alicia in an unfamiliar country surrounded by strangers (Michael Cera and Catalina Sandino Moreno). More and more she unravels, seeing darker visions and hearing chilling noises that send her running into the woods. In this disturbing, landscape, she experiences crushing terror and knows that she must escape which puts the group into a situation that proves both terrifying and life-threatening.
This film is probably one of the best depictions of paranoia i have ever seen. There's great bits of cinematography to show the character's distorted perception of all the events going on around her and how she is seeing them. Would you expect anything else from Christopher Doyle? All the characters are relatalbe to a degree and the acting is fantastic from everyone. It has moments that are uncomfortable which I think are on purpose. My guess why people don't like this film is becuase is because they think they're getting a slasher which this is not. Seriously, don't be put off by the bad user reviews on IMDB.
