Two best friends Grant and Paul hit the road for a weekend of surfing, booze and hopefully - girls. With night falling they take a short cut and meet Lisa and Kelly who invite them to a party. Lust takes the wheel and a game of cat and mouse begins leading them deep into the heartland of evil where they meet . . . The Locals.
The Locals is set in the dead of night in the scariest part of heartland New Zealand, where likeable, innocent young characters are pitted against the things humans fear the most: being lost, being in the dark and being chased by an unknown, menacing foe. It's the dead versus the living, played out against an inescapable curse with escalating levels of fear.
