Dark Amazon

Synopsis: Dark Amazon is a supernatural thriller shot deep in the Amazon jungle of Brazil. After the discovery of a breakthrough cancer cure, a documentary film crew follows a group of researchers into the heart of the rain forest to capture the entire experience. With the cameras rolling at all times, the former Reality TV crew focuses on the researchers' personal dramas, leaving some feeling very uncomfortable as well as capturing strange unexplained occurrences. When the research samples are mysteriously destroyed, things take a deadly turn and they're left stranded, scared, and fighting for their lives, facing both physical and potentially supernatural forces. To make it back to civilization, they must traverse the dangerous rain forest and resist the mental and emotional anguish of this deadly journey.

And this is Rafael, the Paje's son and

my right-hand man here in the jungle.

My English not so good.

So, nice to meet you all.

[Greeting in Portuguese]

Hey, John what's this ritual?

Well, the ritual is for anhang,

who is a spirit protector of the forest.

This is Esteves. He's our liaison

with the Brazilian government.

He worked in the Peruvian Amazon and

he's an invaluable member of our team.

[Both speaking Portuguese]

[Mina] Hi. How are you? I'm Brazilian.

- Hi, how are you?

- My name is mina.


Guys be serious for 20 minutes.

- Hey, mina?

- Yeah?

They all seem kinda weird about us.

They're staring. Are you sure it's okay?

Oh, yeah, they just get

a little cautious about outsiders...

Are you sure?

- Yeah, they'll be fine.

- Okay.


And I'm sorry about Ben.


Yeah! Is everything okay with you two?

He's just very stressed out.

He's, um...

His last clinical trial didn't go

so well. But, don't say anything.

No, of course not. Are you guys okay?

- We're fine. Yes.

- Okay.

Just try to shoot around him.

He's not crazy about it.

Yeah, of course.

- Jay's gonna Mike you.

- Okay.

Just keep it on at all times okay?

Okay, what else? Oh, did you

bring your camera?

- I think so, yeah.

- Okay, cool.

I want you to do some

video diaries at night.

What is that?

Um, like, literally a diary

into the camera.

Just talk about, you know,

like, your feelings

or your thoughts about what's happened.

- Is this a reality...

- No, it's not reality.

No, I think it'll give it a more

intimate feel to the doc, you know.


Probably won't even use any of

it, but I figure...

Better to have too much footage

than too little.

- Okay, I will do that.

- Cool, thanks.

Okay, I don't care what anyone

says, do not stop rolling okay?
