The Reef: Stalked (2022) Movie Script

Yeah, ha-ha-ha, yeah!
Hey! Ha-ha-ha!
Oh, it's so beautiful
out here today.
Yeah, sure is.
- Oh, did you see the ray?
- Yeah, huge.
- Look what I got.
- Whoa, nice.
Look what I scored.
What? How did you do that?
You need to learn
the way of the fish.
Having fun, sis?
- Yeah.
- Group shot.
All right, okay, you ready?
- Yeah.
- One, two, three, smile.
That was so much fun.
I'm so glad you got
me back into diving.
You're a natural.
Like you?
Hey, what's that?
- Oh, I don't know.
- How good
are the islands going to be?
I know, right?
The tropical water,
all that sunshine,
fish everywhere.
Mm, yeah.
Can't wait.
Greg come around to it yet?
- Not really.
- Come on.
It's just like book club only
with fish and spear guns.
He gets that, doesn't he?
- Sort of.
- Hmm.
He'll come around to
it once he realizes
what it means to you.
Isn't that Greg?
Yeah, it is.
Hey, babe. Ladies.
What are you doing here?
Well, that's
a nice way to greet the guy
who's come to give
you a ride home.
But I said I had a lift.
Okay, well, I
thought it'd be nice
to pick you up myself.
Thank you.
See you, sis.
- See you guys.
- See ya.
God, will you get it
through your fucking head?
Get in!
Hey, this is Cath.
Leave a message, bye.
Hey, sis. Uh, hope all's okay.
Um, just give me a ring. Bye.
How was your day?
Have you left
the house at all?
Uh, well, I'm an exotic bloom,
so I'm not meant to be outside.
Oh, okay, well, exotic bloom,
like we agreed, if you're gonna
be staying here for a while,
you need to be
pulling your weight.
You sound like mom.
Well, she has a point.
Look, I'm just
different. Okay?
I'm not like you and Cath.
Hey, I gotta go, but
I'll be back soon, okay?
Hey, this is Cath.
Leave a message, bye.
She wouldn't listen.
Where's Cath?
Where's my sister?
She made me do it.
- Hello.
- There she is!
How are you?
Wow, look at you.
Ah, Jodes, guess who's here?
Nic! We we starting to worry.
I didn't know if you
got my last message
about the change of address.
Oh, yeah. Sorry.
It's, uh, hard getting
online in rural India.
India. How was that?
It was good.
Well, I got something.
Party time.
It's so good to see you.
Yeah, you too.
It's amazing, isn't it?
Yeah, it is.
Yeah, I'll go get the drinks.
What do you
think? Is she okay?
At least she's here.
- Ready?
- Ready.
Here you go
Oh, thanks.
What? Annie.
Oh my God. What
are you doing here?
I wanted to surprise you.
Huh. Yeah, you've
definitely done that.
So what you're into diving now?
Well, yeah, sort of.
What's that?
Oh, that, we wanted
to talk to you about it.
You know, coming here
was Cath's dream.
So we thought it'd
be the perfect place
to pay our tributes.
We all thought it
was a good idea,
but if you don't
think it's right then-
- No, no, I'm sure it's great.
Uh, I'm kind of tired
from the long trip.
Where's my room?
Yeah, I'll show you.
Here you go.
Can I have the wine after you?
- Yeah.
- Oof, look at you go.
- Want some more.
- Yes.
Why don't we
make a toast here?
Top up?
Oh, yeah, thank you.
What have you been up to?
Not much.
Um, just working,
looking after mom.
I made an apple
pie the other day.
What? You're cooking?
That's great.
So is it true?
You were working in the
Greek Islands on a dive boat?
Yeah, taking happy
snaps of rich divers.
But, um, yeah, it
didn't really work out.
Stopped diving, actually.
Hey, come and help me
cook the marshmallows
'cause I keep dropping
them in the fire.
Watch out for that.
Three days of
paddling. Three days?
I thought you said it was two.
It's two nights, but
three days paddling.
Two days wouldn't
be worth coming for.
Three days of paddling.
Don't worry. We'll
take it easy on you.
Won't we, Jodie?
Of course.
You did say that there was
gonna be a four-star resort.
There is, absolute luxury,
rising pool, cocktails.
Everything a girl could want.
That's the third night.
The third night? Great.
Here we go.
- Look at that.
- Oh.
Oh my God.
Come on, slow pokes.
Let's go.
Okay, who wants what?
Actually, Annie,
thinking about it,
maybe you should take
one of the yellow ones.
Easier to get in and out of.
- Sure.
- Lisa,
you'll take the
other yellow one.
Okay. Let's get packing
And remember to distribute
the weight evenly.
Is she always this alpha?
Okay. Let's go.
How are you? You okay?
You look tired.
You wanna take a break?
No, I'm not really tired.
I don't need a break.
You know, Annie
don't get me wrong,
it's great to see
you, it's just like
this isn't really you.
You might be surprised.
Come on. I'll tow you.
I'm fine. Thanks.
Yeah, this is the place.
Yes. Hey, we're
gonna go for a dive.
Oh. It's so beautiful.
- Mm.
- Oh.
Uh, I'm just
gonna float up here.
Come with us?
Let's go over here for a bit.
Nic, follow me down?
I'll come down in a minute.
- Oh, hey.
- Hi.
Can you help me get out?
Well, yeah, of course.
I think I've
damaged my spearhead.
Hey, you coming down?
Oh, my sinuses are playing up.
Think I'm coming
down with something.
Okay. See you soon?
Mm. Yeah.
There's kids
swimming on that island.
Wait, what's that?
Lots of fish around.
Must be a bait ball.
- What?
- I think I saw a shark.
Was it big?
I don't know. I, I just
saw the tip of the fan.
We should let them know, right?
- Yeah.
- Nic!
Nic, there's a shark!
Nic, there's a shark!
Come on! Nic!
Look out! There's a shark!
Check this out.
There's a shark!
Nic, come back! I
think I saw a shark!
Come back!
I can't see anything.
- Okay.
- Stay calm.
Don't splash.
I didn't see anything.
You saw a shark?
Annie did.
How big?
I don't know. I
just saw the tip.
It's probably a reefy.
There's lots of 'em around.
Yeah. They're mostly harmless.
So many fish came through.
I know. Look what I scored.
Oh, wow.
It's almost lunch time.
The sooner we get to the
island, sooner we eat.
Nic, why don't
you and I go ahead
and start cooking up this fish?
- You sure you're okay?
- Yeah. I'm fine.
I was just worried
about you guys.
Go cook lunch. I'm starving.
- Okay?
- All right, let's go.
Feeling better?
You all good?
Yeah. I'm fine.
Is that the first
time you've met the man
in the gray suit?
- What?
- The man in the gray suit.
That's what surfers call sharks.
- Really?
- Yeah.
I've seen a few.
They're pretty timid usually.
It's the big ones you
have to worry about.
Oh, Lisa!
Oh my God!
Shark! Shark!
Shit. What's going on?
I'm going back.
Come on. Let's go.
Come on, swim to me.
Lisa, come on.
Lisa, focus on me. On me.
Look at me.
Come on, Lisa. Lisa!
Swim to me. Swim to me.
Keep coming, keep coming!
Lisa, watch out!
Oh, no.
Where did you go?
Lisa! Lisa!
Annie, we need
to flip the kayak.
Hey, you're gonna have
to get in the water.
I'm gonna get in, we'll
turn it over, okay?
Okay, okay.
All right. Come on.
Come on.
Very good. Good.
Get in. Quick.
You okay? Okay.
Hey, you okay?
Honey, can you paddle?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
Okay. Come on.
We have to get to the island.
That's where we're going.
No, I mean right now.
There are kids swimming
on that island.
Oh my God.
Jodie! Jodie!
There are kids in the water.
Oh my God. I'll go warn them.
You stay with Annie.
Annie, can you paddle?
Okay, come on. Let's go.
Oh my God.
My God. Oh my God.
Oh my God.
Oh my God.
See ya.
Shark! Shark!
Mom, shark!
Shark! Shark!
Shark! Shark!
Shark, shark! Winston, hurry up!
Faster! Faster!
Winston! Come on, come!
Stay there, Demi!
Demi, don't move, don't move!
Good girl!
Oh my God.
Yeah. Good girl.
Come on, come on, come on.
Move, move faster, faster!
Come on, here, gir
Oh God!
Come on! I got ya!
Oh, okay!
My, my leg!
You're okay. You're
all right, baby.
You're okay.
Are you okay? Hey?
Lisa's gone. She's gone.
Come here. It's okay.
It's okay.
Okay. All right, come on.
Hey. It's gone, right?
Come on. Let's go, okay?
Demi! Demi!
Here, here! I got her!
Get her up here! Come on!
Get the towels! Quick, quick!
Oh gosh.
Give them to me. Okay, okay.
We have to put pressure on it.
Keep pressing, that's fine.
Keep pressing. Keep pressing.
Okay. You're okay.
You're gonna be
fine. Look at me.
Okay, yeah. Look at me.
Is there anyone
else on this island?
No. We came here fishing
with our husbands two days ago.
Okay. Where are they?
They've gone.
They've taken the boat.
They'll be gone for days.
Okay. You're
okay, you're okay.
Maybe we should elevate the leg.
- Right.
- Here are a few towels.
It's okay. You're
gonna be okay.
You're all right.
- And breathe in.
- Okay.
- It's all right.
- Here you go.
Here you go, you're okay.
You're gonna be fine.
Do you have any phone
reception, internet,
any way of getting help?
No. It's all dead.
The, the next island there's
reception and people.
Okay. What about boats?
There's, there's a runner boat.
Okay. Can you show us?
That? That's not safe.
Look what it did to the kayaks.
Hey, what are you doing?
I'm just gonna have a look.
Wait. I'll come with you.
I know we have to help her.
Okay? I know that.
But this, this won't
get us to the island.
You saw what it did to the
kayaks and the pontoon.
Yeah, it's not great.
So there are no other boats?
What if we make it more stable?
If we tie one of the kayaks here
and the other one here,
we can make it stable.
Yeah, maybe,
but we're still
not gonna be safe.
What are you doing?
I'm going to try it out.
Let me help ya.
I know we need to get to
the island, but not like this
Annie, this isn't safe.
We need to get her help.
I'm going to get the kayaks.
No. Jodie.
Annie, please just wait!
- Is this good?
- Yeah, it's good.
Three, two, one.
I can't get it out of my mind.
Poor Lisa.
Jodie, come here.
Look, what happened
to Lisa was...
But we have to keep going.
You made it.
Yeah, once you get used
to it, it handled okay.
So we just need to
finish trying it here
and then we can go get help.
So this is your plan?
Yeah, it's that simple?
I guess so.
"Cause what could
possibly go wrong?
Look, if you don't
wanna come, that's fine.
It's not that.
We need to slow down and we
need to think this through.
We don't have
time to slow down.
Yes, there is. We need
to think this through.
I have thought this through.
No you haven't. Not properly.
Would you just listen to me?
This isn't you,
you can't do this!
Don't tell me what
I can and can't do!
You don't know me.
And you know what?
Your sister Cath,
your best friend.
You didn't know her either.
We have to do something.
Remember what to do?
- Mm-hmm.
- Hi.
How are you all?
Here. These are for you.
Some protection
if it comes back.
- Thank you.
- No, thank you.
We pray and make it to
the next island safely.
I'm coming with you.
You don't have to
do that, Nic. Really.
Yes, I do.
Let's go.
Three, two, one, push.
Looks like we're
near the channel.
- What?
- We're leaking.
Oh shit.
- How bad is it?
- I don't know.
It's hard to tell but
it's definitely coming in.
Here, bucket.
Where's it coming from?
Can anyone see where
it's coming from?
Oh shit.
- Let me have a go.
- No, it's all right.
I've got it.
Sit down.
Come on.
- Check the petrol.
- Come on.
It's not the petrol.
Please, check.
It's half full.
Maybe we hit something.
Check the prop.
I don't think so.
I would've felt it.
Oh, shit.
Here, let me have a go.
What is it?
I thought I heard something.
I knew we shouldn't have
come out here in this thing.
Well, we had to do something.
Look I know, but not in this!
I said you didn't
have to come.
I said that Jodie and
I were gonna do it.
Like that
would have changed anything!
This still would've
happened, Annie!
Okay. Well at least
I tried something.
At least I did something and
I didn't run away like you.
- Fuck you!
- No, fuck you!
All right, all right. Enough.
All we can do is paddle.
So let's paddle.
What did you mean
back at the beach?
What did you mean when you said
I didn't know who
you and Cath were?
Oh, nothing.
It was nothing.
Can you just tell me?
Well, you didn't
come to the funeral,
and then the next day you
are out of the country
and you haven't come back.
I was left holding
it all together.
The funeral, the police inquiry.
Mom's depression. Mine.
I'm not as weak
as you think I am.
Who said you were weak?
And Cath, she
wasn't weak either.
You didn't know her
and you don't know me.
You left.
I couldn't.
I just couldn't.
Hey, look.
Paddle. Come on, paddle.
Annie, slowly.
That's it. Stay calm.
Come on.
Where is she? Where is she?
There she is!
Annie! Annie, come on!
You're, you're okay.
I've got you. I've got you.
Okay. Okay.
All right. Come on.
Come on.
Come on.
You're okay.
Come on.
I've got you.
That's it, come on.
You're all right. It's okay.
Come on. I've got you.
Let me see. Let me see.
Come on.
Here. Get this off.
Get this off.
Oh, my God. Just
got the life jacket.
Oh my God. It missed you.
It missed you.
You're alive.
You're alive.
I'm sorry for everything,
for not being there to help you,
for not being at the
funeral, just everything.
I just, I couldn't,
I couldn't, I just...
I could have done
something. I...
I should have known. I
could have done something.
Save my sister, I should
have done something.
No one knew. That's
the worst part.
She never said anything.
Oh, God. It's still here.
What the fuck? Fuck off!
- I can't see it anywhere.
- Oh, fuck.
Oh my God. Oh my God.
Why doesn't it leave
us the fuck alone?
Nic, what are we gonna do?
We have to get to that island.
We have to keep paddling.
No more paddling.
What, what do you mean?
That thing is stalking us.
Okay, I don't know why,
if it's the paddling or what,
but it's hunting us and
it's not gonna stop.
We head for that island,
it'll come for us again.
We have to get rid of it.
We need to kill it.
Are you crazy?
It's a huge fucking shark.
How are we going to do that?
Do we still have that fish?
Yeah, why?
We trap it.
We put the fish on the anchor,
then we tie the
anchor to the kayak.
When it takes it, it'll
get stuck to the kayak,
and it'll drown.
This is ridiculous.
To beat it, we're gonna have
to try something different.
We're not gonna outrun
it. We're just not.
I'm in.
Come on. Help me untie this.
Okay. Got it.
Wonder if it's gone.
I mean, if it's gone, we
should be going for the island.
Hasn't gone.
How do you know that?
Because it won't.
Jodie's got a point.
If it's not here,
then we should be
paddling for the island, right?
I mean, we're losing time.
Nic, if it comes,
we'll take our positions.
We have to get going
and get help for the...
Oh my God. It hasn't gone.
- Where is it?
- I don't know.
I don't know.
Where did it go?
Oh, fuck.
Where the fuck is it?
Undo the rope! Undo the rope!
Jodie, undo the rope!
- Hold on!
- Jodie!
Jodie! Oh fuck!
Jodie, hurry up!
Jodie, untie it!
Come on!
Hurry up!
We did it!
We got it!
We got it.
It worked. It worked.
Oh, we actually got it.
We did.
We should paddle.
Yeah, we'll go faster
if we all paddle.
Let's get rid of this.
Yeah, that's a good idea.
Let's go.
Yeah, let's go.
- We're almost there.
- Yeah.
- Jodie!
- Jodie!
Paddle, quick!
Nic, it's coming!
Jodie, go, go!
Jodie, give me your hand!
That's it.
Pull! Come on!
You're okay. We've got you.
You okay?
Can you stand?
It's my
shoulder, it's my shoulder!
All right. Hold it
close to your chest.
All right. Ready?
One, two...
Oh shit.
I'm sorry, I'm
sorry, I'm sorry.
I'm gonna put your arm in.
I've got you. It's
gonna be okay.
All right.
You're gonna be okay.
You're gonna be okay.
Oh my God.
Nic, get down.
Where'd it go?
Where is it?
Oh, it's there. It was there.
Oh my God.
Oh my God! It's coming!
It's coming, Nic! It's coming!
Shit. Shit.
Okay, the trap
didn't work, we-
You okay?
- Yeah.
- Annie, you okay?
- Yeah.
Oh shit. We're filling up.
Where's the bucket?
We're fucking sinking.
How are we gonna
get to the island?
What are we gonna do?
We're gonna trap
it and drown it.
- Yeah.
- Okay?
Kill it. Just kill it.
Hey, help with this.
- What are you doing?
- I'm gonna trap it
in the net.
Here, tie it. Make
sure it's tied tight.
Grab the net.
When I say throw, you throw.
Hey, no matter what happens,
we get to the island.
Okay, what about you?
Don't worry about me.
- Nic, what about you?
- Just do it!
Throw! Throw!
Oh shit!
Where's the machete?
Oh shit!
Annie. Annie, please!
Annie! Annie, hey.
Oh my God.
Are you, are you okay?
- Yeah.
- It's okay.
It's okay. I've got you.
Here we go.
It's okay. It's okay.
Oh, it's Demi.
- Hello, hi!
- Hey, Demi!
How are you?
Good. Really good.
Hey, Demi. How's your leg?
That is gonna be
a beauty of a scar.
Huh, I know. I'm now
known as shark girl.
The girl that...
- Oh.
- Oh.
To Cath and Lisa.
You'll always be
with us forever.
Always in our hearts.
