Five imbeciles go out to document their adventures on an island, supposedly to win a bet. They do not suspect that they are being used as bsit to prove the existence of a monster that allegedly inhabits the island.
Where do I begin? With the imbeciles that are supposed to be good friends, but who bicker, slam and insult one another at virtually every opportunity? My favorite among these imbeciles is Josh, who singlehandedly commits every stupid mistake and ill-advised action of every idiot in every horror movie ever.
Talking or yelling at the top of your lungs while trying to hide from the murderous beast? Check.
Standing in the dark and turning on a flashlight so the murderous beast can find you more quickly and easily? Check.
Bolting from cover in a snit and stumbling blindly in the woods while the murderous beast is hunting you? Check.
Given tasks to accomplish that while help the group survive, but failing to accomplish a single thing? Check.
Being utterly annoying and useless while finding ways to infuriate his imbecile friends almost constantly? Check.
Whining constantly? Check.
Being an utterly futile and useless coward? Check.
Then, there's Ethan, the supposed wilderness expert in the group, who can't actually do any of the things that he's supposed to be good at. Let us not forget Brandon, who climbs up a tree to hide from the murderous beast, only to later forget how to climb down again. That's right. He forgets how he climbed up the tree, and can't figure out a way to climb down again. There is not a single likeable character in this movie... not one. As a group of friends, they don't pull together in the face of danger. Instead, they argue and turn in one another, and are pretty much willing to abandon each the other to their own fate. The old adage, "With friends like these..." comes to mind.
At some point in the movie, a rifle is introduced. It's supposed to be a high-powered hunting rifle, for the purposes of this movie. In actuality, it's a Gamo air rifle. How do I know? I own the exact model shown in the movie as a hunting rifle.
Foolishly, I ignored the negative reviews. I had hopes that this would be at least semi-decent, as the movie "Sweetheart" was. "Sweetheart" tells the story of a gutsy, resourceful young woman who become trapped on an island with a murderous creature, and she is ten times the man that any of the cretins in "Crypsis" are. She's smarter, tougher, more clever, braver, and cooler under pressure than Ethan, Josh, Brandon and the rest of the idiots in this movie are. See "Sweetheart" instead of this piece of crap.
