Storyline

In a world devastated by an outbreak, Brian, his girlfriend Bobby, his brother Danny and their friend, Kate, are heading to a beach where the brothers spent their childhood vacations expecting it to be a sanctuary. When their car breaks down on the road in the desert, they negotiate with a man called Frank, who is also stranded but without gas. He is trying to get his daughter Jodie to the hospital (she is infected with a disease of some kind), they all decide to travel together. During the journey, massive moral dilemmas arise, as events head into a downward spiral. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

OK film, nothing special
11 July 2010 | by yanquiSee all my reviews

I was fairly entertained, it's not boring it's just the story doesn't really go anywhere, the action sequences keep it plodding along but I think on the whole, it was lacking depth to the characters and the story, the film just crawls to a depressing end. There's isn't even a conclusion as such.

It gets a 6 from me because there were a few scenes which were engrossing to watch.

So to summarise, it has it's moments but overall lacks the suspense you would expect from a horror film, don't expect to be wowed, there aren't any twists or turns and no zombies either.
