Last month, we featured the teaser for the Australian horror flick Primal, about a group of anthropology students in the Australian wilderness who encounter strangeness and savageness. We now have a bit more on the story, as well as a somewhat more revealing, full-length trailer. The story follows six students studying Aboriginal cave art. One of them goes for a late-night swim in some funky water, and comes out… wrong. As in loses her teeth and gains a taste for blood wrong.
Really wrong. What follows is their struggle to decide what to do about her (and their other compatriot who is similarly infected), as they’re trapped in the middle of nowhere, cut off from help. Also, there appears to be some sort of tentacled beastie, and I always love a good tentacled beastie.
Anyway, here’s the new trailer:
So, the music in the trailer is a bit over the top, but it still looks pretty interesting. It gives off a The Descent-like vibe, although the storylines are quite different. It’s described as “in the vein of Cabin Fever, but it looks smarter and more serious than that (I’m not a big Cabin Fever fan. By which I mean — I think it sucked).
I said it then and I’ll say it now — if I go camping with my pals and one of them ends up like that? Head, meet shovel. Primal doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet, but we’ll certainly keep you posted.
