Primal from writer director Josh Reed is an incredibly straightforward isolated from civilization horror flick, where the cast is picked off one by one. The film follows six students searching for old cave paintings deep in a jungle. Something infects them and they turn into a mutated cannibal and the others must fend them off. While we have all seen this before, Reed brings a great sense of direction to the chaos and the mythology of the creatures and the infection is very well constructed. The cast does admirably, but there are no real standouts. Despite the old formula there are a few descent surprises by the end of the film. This is a solid little B-creature that if you don’t ask too much from is worth a watch.
