"[A] sprawling mood piece set in the South African desert....It's often hypnotic to watch, with vivid tableaux such as a cinema buried in the sand."
Film Comment - 11/01/2006
"[A] hubristically ambitious horror film steeped in myth, murder, urban legend, and post-colonial bad karma..."
A demonic killer roams the desert preying on human at the end of their rope. This killer changes forms and can recognize the loneliness and desperation that he can feed off of. When Wendy breaks up with her husband, she picks up the hitch hiker on the road and suspects that all is not well. Fortunately a police officer and a shaman are tracking the killer's trails, but will they reach Wendy in time' If they expect to live they'll need every scrap of resourcefulness they've got, and a powerful will to survive.
