de Josh Reed



If the young men and women in Primal were Sitges spectators they’d know it´s not a good idea to take a trip to a remote forest in search of traces of an ancient civilization. Anja and her four friends go camping, but things go wrong when one of the girls is infected by some bugs. It doesn´t take long for her mutation to begin: the girl turns into a savage, a primitive being, a predator that wants to devour her friends. Anja and her buddies should know the lesson learned from The Descent: never go into a dark cave. Fortunately, director Josh Reed does know it and offers us a bloody, adrenaline-filled horror movie.
