Black Water

Synopsis: While on vacation on Northern Australia, Gracie, her husband Adam and her younger sister Lee decide to take the Blackwater Barry tour in the swamp for fishing. Their guide Jim uses a small motor boat and takes the tourist along the river to a remote spot. When they stop, they are attacked by a huge crocodile that capsizes their boat and immediately kills Jim. The three survivors climb a tree and when they realize that help would never come to rescue them, they decide to try to find a way out of their sheltered location. However, in the muddy water, their boat is flipped and the crocodile stalks the trio under the water.

Who's up for a drink?

- Oh, yeah.

What was that?

Better have a look.

It's floated down from upstream.

We'll take it with us.

Let me jump back in.

Shall we go further up?


- Yep. Let's do it.

Get 'em in, eh?

This is excellent.

Even though the tide's running out,

there's still a lot of water up here.

It's just right.

Let's get a line in, eh?

Just out there.


Something's there.

Take it easy.

Come on, pick it up!

What's that?

- What?

I don't know.

What happened?

- It's a fucking croc!

It's a croc. Get up the tree!

- Where's Lee?

Get up the tree, I'll get Lee

- Lee!

Get out of the water!

Just get up the tree!

Okay, okay!


Lee, where are you?

Get out!

It's coming back!

It's the croc! Get out!

Get out now!

Please, get out!

Adam, get out!


Come on.

Come on, hurry.

Lee, get out of the water now!

Get out!

Get on the boat!

Get down. Lie down.

Over here!

Lee, hold on!

Lee, it's okay!

Get up the tree.

Get up the tree!

We've got to get her.

I think it might've gone.

- Why? - The body's gone.


- Yep.

Before I saw it coming for you, I saw

Jim's body floating there.

- I can't see anything.

Trust me, it was there. Lee!

Are you okay?

We've got to get her out of there.

- We're also gonna need the boat.

I'll go over. - Are you crazy?

Maybe it's gone, maybe it hasn't!

Besides, the boat isn't safe.

- We can't just stay in the tree.

Why not? Someone will come

looking for us. - Who?

Who, Grace? No one saw us leave,

no one knows we're here.

The rope.

If she can get the rope to us,

we can pull her across.

Let's try that.

- Lee!

The rope at the front of the boat,

can you reach it?

Can you throw it to me?

I'll go.

- No!

Catch it, alright?

- I will.


- It's okay.

Can you see it?

Come on, Lee, you can do it this time.
