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.

[Woman cries out]

- [Jay] Isn't that the truth?


Oh and band-aid?


And band-aid!


Yeah, like, those are, those are just...


Sanitary bandage?

[Nikki] No, they're just adhesive

bandages or something like that.


Adhesive bandages.

- [Nikki] I totally made that up.

- No it's true, I think.

- [Nikki] But tissues...

- Band-aids are something else.

Sanitary bandages sound...

You getting started right away, huh, bud?

Man who loves his job. Get the

shot no matter what the cost.

[Women talking]

Yeah, you're not in

the way right there at all.

[Robby] Hang on, let me

get out of the way. Sorry.

Smell of the Amazon.

Is that what that is? I thought

it was gasoline. And cigarettes.

Oh my God. That was

a really long flight.

- All right, you ready?

- Time to get to work!

Are you guys hungry?

Should we get some food?

Yes, starving.

[Nikki] Do you think we could,

like relax the rest of the day today?

[Mina] Yeah, I just want to show you

guys around before we get to the jungle.

- [Nikki] Yeah, totally. It's perfect.

- I know.


There's the theater...

[Nikki] They brought

everything from Europe.

I can tell.

That's really beautiful.

[Jay] I'm really impressed that

they have power and...

- ...telephones.

- Oh my God.

- [Mina] What do you mean?

- Well, I wasn't expecting that.


Wow, look at this.

[Jay] I love this market. Can we stop?

[Traffic noise]

[Indistinct talking]

Yeah, that totally makes your eyes pop.

All right. Sold.


He's like, I'm outta here. See?

- See? Terrible right?

- Yeah.

Piranha. 3-D. Sort of.

Is that an ant?

[Nikki] Are we gonna see ants

that are actually that big?

These are way too big.


Heh, heh, that's scary.

- Did you see this?

- Hate to break it up...

...but we gotta get going if we

wanna get to the boat on time.

Really? Ah, okay.

Come on.

Cracking that whip.

[Road noise]

When we get up I'll get your bag.



[Water lapping]

- We're good?

- Thanks, Jay.


All right, are you guys ready?

- I guess so.

- Don't be nervous.


Yeah, look at me. Ignore this.

Well, John green is really

the one responsible...

for this discovery.

He's been living in the Amazon

for the last 15 years.

When I was 12 years old, my

mother passed away of cancer.

And John raised me.

He's been a constant

inspiration to me, and really...

The reason why I went

into the research field.

I'm thrilled to work with the Brazilian

government, being Brazilian myself.

and I'm hoping this research will shed

some light into future funding

and partnership with Brazil.

Do you wanna say something

about the company?

- No, I'm good.

- You sure?

You good? That was great.


I'm the queen of the world!

Oh, man. You just out-gayed yourself.

This is our amazing producer

hard at work.


You guys suck.




[Nikki] That must be John.

That's so cute.


- Oh, wow, is it beautiful.

- Oh, yeah.

Mina! Oh, mina!

Have you lost some weight?

You look great!

I'm fine.

- Guys, this is John!

- Hi!

- That's Nikki.

- Hi.

- I'm Nikki. It's so nice to meet you.

- And that's Jay.

- This is Robby back here.

- Hey, how's it goin'?

- You know Ben.

- And Ben!

Hey, look it's an Amazon stair-master.

- Oh, look at the little kids!

- So cute.

[Speaking Portuguese]

This is the Paje.

He's the shaman of the village.

He's welcoming us and inviting

us to a ritual this evening.
