The Bare Bones: When scientists drilling in the Sahara Desert stop communicating, a security agent is sent out to investigate what happened, only to find more questions.
Well, this fever dream film is based on that globally popular urban legend. Given how popular modern urban legend have become, despite being far less interesting(looking at you, slendy) it's a wonder there isn't more media based off this one.
The film itself is fun and entertaining, with whiplash educing plot twist and endearingly bad effects.
It's difficult to adjust to this sort of style in a 2013 film, but that doesn't stop the film from being thrilling and entertaining, and even visually fascinating in some cases. This film has one of my favorite scenes in any horror film ever. That is not an easy feat.
