From IMDb: “A hopeless man stranded in the wilderness befriends a dead body and together they go on a surreal journey to get home.”

Poster Rating: C- / C

Review: (#1) One man’s island is another man’s loneliness and while it certain evokes the solitude of island life with the companionship of the dead, it’s feels like such a clueless design that the artist might not have even had that in mind when he or she created it.

(#2) A simple, corny design that does little to enhance the film’s image and only accentuates it’s lunacy. That’s both a good and a bad thing.

Trailer Rating: B- / C+

Review: (#1) If you can watch the trailer and not emerge curious, then it hasn’t done its job. The narrative seem a bit listless and forced, but there’s just enough intrigue to suggest an entertaining time for the audience.

(#2) For the totally crazy premise executed in such ludicrous manner, this trailer increases the likelihood that more than the traditional specialty audience might give the film a shot.
