Damned River chronicles a group of friends' harrowing trip down the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe. Their guide, Ray, an unhinged madman and former mercenary (?), is at odds with other local rafters.
Thus, as the begin their trek, Ray slowly descends into madness. The premise isn't exactly novel, but it isn't bad either. The issues with Damned River all come down to execution.
The acting is over the top and hammy, the script is all wet, and the action is as sub-par as one would expect from a film only available on YouTube as a poor transfer from an obscure TV series called "Movies for Men."
That said, there is some fun to be had with Damned River—in the, this should have appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000 sort of way.
