A group of international tourists seeking fun and adventure in Brazil get a lot more than they bargained for in the suspenseful horror film PARADISE LOST. Written by first-time screenwriter Michael Arlen Ross and directed by John Stockwell (BLUE CRUSH) PARADISE LOST the first American film to be shot completely in the South American nation is set in the Brazilian mountains where Alex (Josh Duhamel) his sister Bea (Olivia Wilde) and her best friend Amy (Beau Garrett) are preparing for an eco-tour. But when their bus crashes they are stranded with a group of locals as well as a handful of other tourists including Finn (Desmond Askew) and Liam (Max Brown) two Brits looking for fast times and hot women and Pru (Melissa George) a beautiful Australian traveling on her own who takes an immediate liking to Alex. In the middle of nowhere they find a little oasis in a surprise sandy bar where they get to know each other drinking and dancing until they wake up the next morning having been drugged and robbed of just about everything with all remnants of the bar gone. They walk into an unfriendly town but the only person offering any help at all is Kiko (Agles Steib) who might not exactly be leading them to safety. PARADISE LOST is a well-paced thriller that features brutal torture violence and a terrific breathless underwater chase through some very cool caves. The film also succeeds as an examination of the fear--warranted or not--that some Americans feel in the international community post-9/11.
