This movie is a zombie movie. It does have an interesting plot. Surfers have found a secluded spot in Baja Mexico to surf. One of the surfers calls his brother, and invited the gang down to join them. The only problem is, when they get there...there is only a deserted camp site, with no sign of anyone. As nightime hits, there are strange sounds, and people start disappearing. The movie has an above average plot, and the characters are likeable. Not much blood and gore, mostly suspense and chills. I give it 3 stars. It did hold my interest thru the whole movie.

Good grade B horror with a message

"The Trespassers is a gripping tale of teens looking for fun and finding horror instead. The surf is awesome and makes me want to go check out the Baja scene but now I'm afraid I'll find scary people like things that crawl around in the dead of the night eating people. The place name, Punto Abre Ojos, Point of Open Eyes, contains the message that these poor teens should have listened to. For most of them, they learned too late... maybe in the sequel the survivors will redeem themselves.
The acting shows potential with the hot girls, handsome leads, and some quirky perverted videographer who is part of this young group on a road trip adventure to a Baja surf camp. Michelle Borth is a pretty and talented young actress. Kaiwi Lyman plays a sensitive and athletic lead who we hope to see more of. The horrors they face are the horrors we face when, to our peril, we don't keep our eyes open to the horrific fundamentalist agenda."
Great Horror Film!

"Using the aspects of a surf trip and a cursed land, this film will do very well in DVD sales i feel. I also cant wait to see the sequall. more blood and gore...and surfing."
Less is More - Brilliant

"This movie looks like it was shot on a handycam and the actors seem raw and unpolished enough to be real teenagers. The mexican settings are very atmospheric and set an uneasy tone to the movie. The cinematography is claustraphobic and dark for much of the film and so you actually feel like you are there. Not unlike the Blair Witch Project - polished cinematography has been sacraficed here for raw enagement - for me it works - but others may find it hard to get past the scratchy production values. This is one of the most surprisingly good horror/zombie movies I've seen in a while.
The storyline follows a band of five young surfers as they head to a remote piece of Mexican beach to hook up with central character's brother. When they finally arrive their day starts off well with some hot surfing from the guys and a bit of topless nudity from the girls. But when they start wandering among the sand dunes around them - what they discover is very disturbing. Abandonned SUV's, fleash picked human skeletons and by now the party has already been split up. Things don't get any better for anyone. Raw gritty and real - this is a hardcore mexican surfer zombie movie without a scrap of humour in it. I'm sure we will hear more about this among zombie fans as more people discover it."
Bad looking and irritating

"Trespassers is another one of those typical, wrong place wrong time horror flicks where a good looking group of young friends out to party and have a good time end up dead. This time the group is off for a trip to Baja Mexico for some surfing, sex, and alcohol and wind up on a deserted beach. One of the group disappears, leaving his video camera and they seem him grabbed by something on the tape. This has been used too many times in recent films. In town they group learns about the history of the beach. It was evidently home to some religious nuts at one time. Their leader did an unspeakable act and was killed. Now he's back for revenge on anyone who dares to trespass on his beach.
It's not terribly original which I can live with. What I can't live with his absolutely some of the worst camera work ever scene in a film. Was the camera man drunk or did he just have a nervous tick which caused the shaky, jumpy camera work in many spots. It really made it difficult to watch. The acting was nothing to write home about either as this was strictly amateur hour and it certainly showed. Although look for Clayton Rohner in a bit role. Rohner has a ton of acting credits including the 80's teen comedy, "Just one of the Guys" and 80's slasher flick "April Fools Day". The women in it are pretty hot...they just can't act. "
Don't Let This Movie Trespass Into Your Home!!

""Trespassers" was a very terrible movie. From the beginning, the movie looked as though it were shot on a handycam! It was just awful and very shaky! And that was just the beginning!
PROS OF "TRESPASSERS": 1. The zombies were kind of cool and creepy. 2. The torture scenes, with El Gringro were very good, and that showed SOME promise. 3. Although the camera was shaky, at least the quality was good! 4. The storyline was kind of good, but it had it's flaws (see below).
CONS OF "TRESPASSERS": 1. The camera was terrible! 2. The acting was so terrible, it was unbearable! 3. There were parts of the plot that made absolutely no sense at all! 4. The darkness made it hard to see what was going on. 5. We rarely ever see dead bodies. 6. The ending sucked big time! 7. But, at least it ended!
Okay, this is basically what went down in the process of this movie. When the torture scenes came by, there was at least a glimmer of promise, but it just fell apart in the end. The ending was awful. Just, rent if you really wanna see it!"
