The Locals

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 2003

R13
Restricted

In this first feature film from writer/director Greg Page, two friends from the city (Johnny Barker and Dwayne Cameron) take off on a surfing weekend. Their prospects of finding fun go down with the sun. Instead of enjoying surf and black sand, the boys find themselves lost in a rural nightmare, battling an inescapable curse. Page, known for his high energy music videos, wheel-spins city limits phobia into the Waikato heartland for a Kiwi twist on horror genre thrills. Website Horrorview called it "different and inventive enough to stand out from the crowd." 

It’s also a reminder that at night, an empty Waikato paddock can hold more spooks than a haunted house.
– Russell Baillie, Weekend Herald, 4 October 2003
