The Reef

de Andrew Traucki



A group of friends see their trip to the coral reef ruined when their boat capsizes. In the middle of the ocean, one of them decides to stay on the overturned hull while the other four try to swim to the coast. If this festival was held in August, The Reef would give us an answer to the eternal summer dispute and we’d all make a run for the mountains. And with good reason, because if its director already gave us a good scare with the crocodiles in Black Water, now he gives us goosebumps with sharks in this distressing, shockingly realistic survival thriller where you can cut the tension with your teeth.
