Tiara (model Tamara Bleszynski) plans a trip to remote Pengantin Island
with boyfriend Lilo. They are soon joined by niece Mandy and a slew

priest [with the help of black magic] kill everyone in the tribe. Today,

new bride. This wild beast stalks and slaughters his victims while skinning
them and drinking their blood.
