In this feature debut by Jane Campion's sister Anna, a party of English school leavers travels to a remote country house to shoot a low budget horror movie. But during filming, and especially during a videotaped collective acid trip, tensions surface threatening to tear the group apart. The writer/director's sympathy for her characters is, regrettably, not matched by her understanding of them. Emotional revelations that should explode in the tranquil silence of the forest are curiously muffled.
