‘The Beach’ goes walkabout in this slow-burning psychological thriller set in the Australian outback. British backpacker Alex (Shaun Evans) and his posh girlfriend Sophie (Amelia Warner) discover that hell is other people when they accept a lift from handsome American Taylor (Scott Mechlowicz).

Like the Polaroid photos Taylor takes of everyone he meets, his chameleon-like character only slowly comes into focus as his insidious mind games reveal him to be a manipulative sociopath. Obsessed with an incriminating snap taken earlier by Taylor, Alex succumbs to jealousy and escalating paranoia. Sophie is smarter and tougher, but blindsided by her concern for Alex – and an incipient sexual attraction to Taylor – she fails to heed the warning signs…

Working from a script by James ‘My Little Eye’ Watkins and Cate Blanchett’s husband Andrew Upton, first-time director Ringan Ledwidge makes effective use of both claustrophobic interiors and stark landscapes: whether the characters are trapped in the sweaty confines of the car or framed against big skies, we share their growing sense of separation. Gone but not forgotten.

Scott Mechlowicz owned this film much like Lowe did in the forgotten Curtin Hanson film "Bad Influence." With now My Little Eye, Gone, Eden Lake and The Descent: Part II under his belt, Watkins is becoming an up-and-coming master of horror.
