One friend goes skinny dipping and awakens something deadly, something evil, something...primal. Soon friend is turning against friend in director Josh Reed s witty and scary nightmare that features a sexy cast of rising Australian stars falling under the curse of the evil that lies within. Like Cabin Fever, it s a classic chiller that will make you glad you stayed home.

I wasn't sure I was going to like it. I first saw it on Netflix. It's a decent movie. Lately I have seen a few decent Australian movies. I won't say anything much about the story, I don't want to ruin it for people that have not seen it. They did a great job in establishing each characters personality. I thought the guy chad was a big wus. He expected a woman to do a mans job and I just didn't like him. Mel, chad's girlfriend, was a b*t*c*h and got what she deserved. The poor guy warren didn't deserve what he got. He was a nice guy. This movie is definitely a decent movie to watch and I liked it so much that I bought it on here. I bought it used from Go hastings I believe and it was as described in very good condition. Not a scratch on it. I've bought a lot of movies from them and I have been satisfied with Go Hastings. They ship fast too.

I really like this movie. It's sort of a monster movie, and I like the way it progresses. The people make you want to smack them upside the head at times, but I really do like it! I saw it on a movie channel first, and them bought it, that's how much I like it!

For an Aussie production I'd never heard of before, it turned out better than I thought it would be. For a good while, I thought it was going to turn into another The Ruins. I was prepared to get really mad with a super bummer ending but I was quite happy with the way it turned out.

I saw other reviewers call it an eco-terror flick. Huh? I am completely stumped by that as I never got the slightest hint that it had anything to do with that. To me it was more of an ancient curse. After all, if it's been around for 12,000 years, how can it have anything to do with eco terrorism? I just don't get it. Maybe I missed something there.

I do agree with others that the plot holes were so huge as to make the movie ludicrous on so many levels. The one girl figuring out the paintings were a warning was pretty stupid because she never explains what kind of warning. Plus, the fact that they all just didn't pack up and get out of Dodge was a biggie. Then there was that last guy that was such a wimp, I wanted to reach into the screen and kill him myself. I couldn't wait for him to die and he was the last male cast member to bite it. He deserved the horrible death he got. Another thing were those bugs. How come they ate all the rubber off the tires on their car but not them while they slept in the open in camp? Duh!

The thing that redeemed the whole movie was the ending. If not for that, I would have been royally upset and this two hours I spent would have ended with one star. However, the gore, colorful metaphors galore, censored of course on SyFy, and the blatant stupidity of the characters was all part of the good time. Plus, the chicks were pretty hot.

It was an uneven ride, redeemed in the end. Recommended for those with patience and a high tolerance for suspending disbelief as expected for this kind of fare.

There's something nasty in the Australian Outback that wants feeding. Supposedly, it has a mind of its own and the means of recruiting caregivers. It's done so for eons. Enter a motley crew of idiots and you can practically hear the dinner gong sing out..........FEEDING TIME! Add one mutant bunny and let the games begin.
I must say, as campers go this lot shouldn't have been sent off without serious instructions in camping. Although one or more may have had some college experience, as a whole, they were disorganized morons, not an astute one in the bunch. They soon learned, the hard way, that getting bit from a mutant gets you nowhere while swimming in the local pond proves quite transforming. The mutating phase though, proved to be very inconsistent (although at this point, if you're winning to accept that people can lose their teeth one minute and grow a new set of fangs out of whole cloth seconds later, then you're willing to believe anything). I know this movie wasn't meant to be funny but it was impossible to take it any other way. One scene alone was worth a guffaw: the manic search for a machete in the backseat of a car. Machetes in general are not something you can easily overlook. The plot was grievously underworked in any case. Basically, this film was based on the game Hide and Seek. If they were willing to run around in a forest at night then they should have been willing to run for their lives in the opposite direction.

By the time the wacky conclusion played out, I found myself missing the mutant bunny.

Primal (2010), a horror thriller set in the Australian wilderness, is kind of a mixed bag of good and bad, with some predictable elements, and also some surprises. The threat is an interesting one, although the special effects do falter a bit in the execution of some of the scenes. If seeing a group of squabbling young people, battling to the death against animalistic creatures sounds like fun, you may want to check out this film. Spoilers follow.

Anthropology student Dace (Wil Traval), and his friends Anja (Zoe Tuckwell-Smith), Kris (Rebekah Foord), Mel (Krew Boylan), Chad (Lindsay Farris), and Warren (Damien Freeleagus), are in a SUV headed to find a rock wall with some ancient paintings. They find a tunnel, which they somehow know is a short cut to their destination. After reaching the site and setting up camp, Mel decides to take a dip in a pond, and soon becomes sick, eventually transforming into a vicious screeching animalistic creature, with sharp teeth and a taste for human flesh.

Insects have disabled their vehicle, stranding the group. They wander through the woods carrying torches, trying to drive Mel to a trap. Surprisingly this silly ploy works, but Mel manages to escape, killing Warren, and causing Dace to fall into the pond. The water somehow is responsible for the strange transformation, and Dace also begins to show signs of turning. The survivors decide to kill him, but Mel returns and helps Dace escape. With two creatures to contend with, their chances for survival appear to be very slim.

Primal isn't too concerned with story construction, as a vicious threat is introduced, the campers turn on each other, and overdramatic mayhem ensues.
