A group of friends makes a bet to survive on an island. Unbeknownst to them, a mysterious old creature starts to hunt them and what was once an innocent bet is now a fight for survival. As the night goes on, none of them may make it out alive.
The PR for this promises “a pulse-racing profusion of Stranger Things and Predator.” No pressure, right?
This is the first full-length film from director Paul Anthony Rogers.
Honestly, it’s pretty basic. There’s a weird creature that ends up looking like Gollum on steroids and he kills just about everyone. I’ve had an entire holiday of arguments that I’m still getting over, so I really didn’t feel like listening to an hour plus of idiots in the woods fighting and then yelling one another’s names as they are chased and murdered. Your mileage may vary.
It certainly looks nice and the non-CGI practical monster is a definite plus.
Crypsis is available on demand and on DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment.
