The film’s synopsis states that “memory cards unearthed in a remote stretch of the Mojave Desert tell the story of four travellers who vanished during a sun-drenched camping trip. One night, everything changes when the foursome is sent on a mind-bending voyage of unrelenting terror into a world of darkness that no human was ever meant to see.”
It currently has a score of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 17 reviews, as of Wednesday, February 7.
