Horror written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh ('Jumanji', 'Die Hard With a Vengeance', 'Armageddon'). In 1961, Michael Rockefeller was a member of a wealthy family and son of a future Vice-President. He travelled to New Guinea to study the remote Asmat tribe, but after the boat he was travelling in capsized, Michael swam for shore and was never seen again. Some say that he was cannibalised by the natives, others believe he chose to live in seclusion amongst them. Almost 50 years later, two young couples head into the wilderness in an attempt to find Rockefeller and solve the mystery once and for all. But if Michael met a grizzly end, does the same fate await them?

As others have mentioned, what we get is not the "teens going out and making out whilst each one gets picked off" type of film, no, we have the relationship strain between two sets of friends that can be a lot more real then other throwaway high-budget films with the stereotypical and unrealistic characters.
Like in Hostel, the gore, and action are a long time coming, and my only real gripe with this film is the weak reasons why they go out into the jungle knowing the dangers, especially with their very first run in with the locals, but anyway, if you over look this, then the film is entertaining, and whilst we know that it's low-budget, I didn't feel it was so whilst the film was running. I thought the DVD ending was very good, especially if you pay attention to what you see...
Having watched 95% of horror films out there, and the night before I sat through the poor acting, and plastic characters of Wrong Turn 2, this is one of the best low-budget horrors on DVD this year. Paradise Lost could've been better if it had gone more down these lines instead of jumping on the bandwagon of torture-horror, and of course the biggest difference between this and Blair Witch, is that Blair Witch revolves around a supernatural legend, whereas there is more than a small chance that this could happen to you if you decided to explore New Guinea on your own, and let's face it the most frightening horror is that which could actually happen...
However,what starts out as seemingly a great adventure and perhaps even boring at first.....well.....give it 53 minutes!!--then......far more exciting and rather more unsettling,to say the least,than T.B.W.P.....but....
that's all I'm saying,lol!---watch to the end from then on in... keep watching now you have built up the tension that far in...stay strong,lol and don't miss the very final scene relating to the connection of the whole story...(mere seconds at the VERY end...a rear view???!!!!)
Give it a go, it's a bargain for the price.
On it's own merits, the movie just about works, without ever coming close to shining. In the aforementioned Cannibal Holocaust (CH), you get something of a social commentary, which this one never delivers - moreover, CH had decidedly evil/perverse 'protagonists'; this movie's main characters varies from the very annoying (i.e. the stupid couple) to the slightly annoying (the vanilla couple). As such, it's difficult to sympathize with the characters, or at least find them interesting as one might watching CH.
There's the obligatory gore, the not-so-surprising ending, and just enough suspense to bother finish the popcorn. Quite run-of-the-mill slash.

Why use such a crappy camera the picture quality is s***. Blu-Ray shows just how bad it really is. Someone should give the director a damn good shaking. Read morePublished on 27 Jan. 2015 by TC
Well firstly I thought this film was ok, it was genuinely good in places but it was let down badly by the pacing and character development. Read morePublished on 5 Mar. 2014 by Ihaterain
I love this film. It builds up the tension gradually by focusing on the destruction of the relationship between the two couples. Read morePublished on 2 Oct. 2013 by Marianne
