Two couples are stranded deep in the desert when thier truck rolls down a ravine. They are far from anywhere and short on supplies. As the days pass, they have no water, and suffer dearly in the sun and heat, and fight wild animals and cold at night. With no one to help, is it possible that any of them can survive?

This film was released to video in 2010, and is often available for rent, or on TV. I caught it on “Watch Instantly” on what is left of NetFlix. This is a fairly clever survival movie. It has it’s problems. Some of the decisions they make are pretty stupid decisions. At one point, deeply lost in the desert, there are electrical wires in the distance. Oops.

This is sometimes billed as a horror film. It’s not. It’s a suspenseful survival film though. Not a well known film, but it’s got a “made for TV” feel to it, even though it’s not, really. But all that aside, it’s a story that has its moments and will drag you in and keep you interested. It could be much worse. Give it a shot if you’re in the mood for a suspenseful story.
