"wild paranormal romantic thriller"
Action adventure movie star Gina Bliss has just completed
her latest movie as always doing her own stunts when her
agent informs her she has been invited to compete on a
reality TV show, SURVIVING DEMON ISLAND, which she accepts.
On a boat in the middle of the ocean heading to an isolated
island, Gina meets the producer Lou, her five opponents and
obnoxious technical advisor Derek, who makes it plain he
expects the actress to go home first
On the isle, Derek and Gina bet on physical conditioning in
which they trek through the jungle; near the finish line,
Gina trips Derek to win the contest. On a trek in the
jungle, they are attacked by stuntmen pretending to be
demons; Gina and two teammates defeat their opponents.
On the second day, real demons attack Gina's team. She
leads the counterattack just before Derek arrives at the
scene. They win the fight, but know this was real. Lou
explains that there is no survivor show, demons are real,
and he, as the Keeper of the Realm of Light, is seeking new
recruits. Lou further explains that demons evolve and live
in major cities, but not sure why they are here on this
remote island. As they struggle to survive, Derek and Gina
fall in love, but a shocker awaits both of them.
This is a wild paranormal romantic thriller that has enough
tongue in cheek to make for a fine action adventure tale.
The relationship between the lead couple is terrific and
complex while the strong support cast including the
teammates and the demons enhance the thrills and chills of
a fun story line with a terrific surprising final twist.
Though why Lou selected a celebrity like Gina even if he
knows she is skilled when he avoids publicity sees odd,
Jaci Burton provides a delightful Beauty vs. the Beast tale
with the hero's brother up next.
