★★★★½ "A terrific Kiwi thriller, as pitiless as it is nuanced" - Stuff.co.nz.  

A family trip through the New Zealand wilderness turns into a nightmare when they're suddenly confronted by a pair of drifters in this Sundance thriller starring Daniel Gillies (The Originals) and Miriama McDowell (Waru).

Winding down a desolate road through an endless valley, Alan and Jill stop their car to take their teenage boys on a hike through the New Zealand wilderness. As they rest for a picnic at a clearing overlooking the water, two ominous-looking drifters appear out of nowhere, silently surrounding the peaceful clan and radiating a threat of imminent danger. With a swift act of violence, these men take the family by force, a seemingly random decision that sets them all on a maddening collision course with the ghosts of their pasts—from which there is no escape.

★★★★½ - Newshub
"brutal, haunting and excellent storytelling." "Anchored by a truly terrifying performance from Daniel Gillies and equally memorable and affecting outing from Matthias Luafutu"

★★★★ - NZ Herald
"A stark and unsettling instant Kiwi classic." "there is much to be appreciated in this beautifully made film"
