They arrive at the final location, the tiny hillside area close by the dried-up lakebed, then, start to set-up the camp. In the evening, the four were awakened by the frantic noises and booming sounds of animal which happens to be getting near them. Robbie and Scott left their tent to have an investigation, but then find no clues at all. Robbie continued by himself and saw the light along the hillside path.

Writer’s Opinion

This film is somehow very similar to Skinamarink and that is not really a good idea at all. You absolutely no idea what is going on the whole runtime and it is totally of horrible moviemaking with totally dark shots with the flashlight every time. If the darkness will bother you, don’t worry since you will end up getting that screams and running of no context. However, if it will totally bother you at all, then you will just be treated to the random footage thrown altogether going from day to night and so on.

Somehow, the movie plot is terrible with a bad camera work, mainly for the major character is the cameraman also, plus the bad lightings affect it. This is what will happen when someone told you that you need to really get out from there and shoot the film. However, the good side of the movie was probably some of their unexpected sounds that really add something. The worst film is the visual medium here.
