United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Alternative Footage, Behind the scenes, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Short Film, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Two modern-day treasure hunters go searching for the lost gold of a legendary 1800s outlaw in the remote jungles of Far North Queensland, Australia. But instead of riches, they find a different kind of legend: a ferocious Australian monster known as a Yowie, Australia's answer to Bigfoot, and a savage battle for survival ensues. Thrown into the mix is a park ranger named Rhiannon and a burnt-out ex-homicide detective named McNab. Travis Bain's second feature is a fast-paced, suspenseful adventure/horror movie that pays tribute to B monster movies of yesteryear, ranging from 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' to 'The Legend of Boggy Creek' to John Carpenter's masterpiece 'The Thing', with a healthy dose of 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre' thrown in as well. ...Throwback (2013) ( Throw back ) (Blu-Ray)

My copy is rated 15, while the Amazon one is rated 18! The reverse of the case states: 'Exceptional... you are literally on the edge of your seat throughout'. I wonder if there are two versions and they are referring to the18 one? Certainly cannot be referring to the version I saw. The guy who reviews the movie saying 'total crap, avoid' was nearer the mark! I could say kids might enjoy it, but maybe that would be insulting to kids. KAN
This film was created with a reasonable idea, with friends (friends initially which changes quickly) venturing out into extremely remote terrain, and running into a creature which is considered myth. A few extra characters are brought in to 1. build interest and 2. provide someone for the Yowie to kill. The problem is that it's all done in a very amateurish manner, with wooden acting all round, a bad script and a really awful music score. On top of this the production is far, far too long with periods where nothing is happening except wandering through the rainforest. Maybe tighter editing would have helped but the film really is severely lacking in most departments.
I bought the film on Blu-ray and this was one decent aspect - as it was shot around Cairns there is a lot of great scenery and much of the time the Blu-ray presentation is quite good with great detail and nice colours. However there are also quite a lot of scenes where the quality is lower with fuzziness and blur on the left and right sides of the screen. The audio is only a simple Dolby Digital stereo track but this is probably satisfactory for the material.
Australia has produced some great horror and creature films over the past few years but unfortunately this one is not at the same level.
Liked the characters. Even the human villain. A true slimeball.
Loved the monster costume. A bad one can sink a Bigfoot movie. This was one of my favorites.
