Indigenous (2014) Horror Movie Review


“Indigenous” (2014) is a horror film set against the verdant backdrop of Panama, where a group of friends face unexpected horrors. Directed by Alastair Orr and penned by Max Roberts, the movie chronicles their journey into the jungle with a local guide. The excursion becomes a terrifying ordeal when they are abandoned by their guide and must confront savage creatures. Alastair Orr, known for his work on horror films such as “From a House on Willow Street,” “Expiration,” and “The Unforgiving,” brings his expertise to this chilling tale.

The film attempts to blend the natural beauty of Panama with the thrills of a horror narrative, but it falls short in delivering a fresh take on the genre. With a rating of 4.5/10 on IMDb, it’s clear that “Indigenous” struggles to leave a lasting impression on its audience. The storyline is predictable, and the characters fail to break away from the typical horror tropes, resulting in a lack of originality that viewers have come to expect from the genre.

“Indigenous” does offer moments of tension and an atmospheric setting that may appeal to some horror enthusiasts. However, for those seeking a film that offers a new twist or deeper exploration of its themes, it may be best to look elsewhere. The movie serves as a reminder that even the most beautiful locations can’t compensate for a lackluster plot and underdeveloped characters. For a more engaging experience, viewers might consider alternatives like “The Descent” or “The Ruins,” which provide a more compelling and thrilling adventure into the unknown. I give 3 out of 5 stars. (Nothing spaciall but isn’t terrible)
