“I’m not the outdoors type, Peter!”

A couple is trying to resurrect their failing marriage on a long weekend. They travels to a remote beach, spewing their destructive selves in the open. While littering, killing and care less about their surroundings in form of nature and animals. The nature will soon take revenge!

Another interesting “Ozploitation”. Definitely had it’s atmosphere and moments. Cheaply made, but with good actors and some great animal-moments. I would have enjoyed a longer and more intriguing dialogue though. A better script would’ve giving this a much better score.
