Based on true events, ‘Primeval’ is about an American news team that journeys to one of the most inaccessible regions on the planet hoping to hunt down a barbarous murderer believed to have taken over hundreds of lives.
This frightfully alarming and terrifying horror-thriller starring Dominic Purcell and Orlando Jones, occurs in the tiny (actual) African country of Burundi where, supposedly, the biggest and meanest African crocodile in the world lives. As the fearless news crew gingerly makes their way toward the source of the croc, they soon find that the savagery brought down on man by man itself is hardly a comparison to the persistent brutality of Mother Nature’s most irrepressible marauder.
Orlando Jones as Steven Johnson adds a much-needed gentle hint of wit to an otherwise sombre flick. Brooke Langton as Aviva Masters delivers a welcome touch of appeal and allure to a debauched and shadowy African setting.
