M.I.A. A Greater Evil is a 2018 released mystery horror film about a group of college students looking for gold in war-torn Vietnam.
The American-British-Thai 89 Dreams co-production stars Valerie Bentson, Lâm Vissay, Sarah Ball, Mark Matula and Sahajak Boonthanakit.
A group of American college students embark on an expedition looking for gold in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Their dreams quickly unravel when an unplanned detour leaves the group lost and wandering where many before them have mysteriously vanished without a trace.
A terrifying night-time encounter makes them realize they are not alone. Tensions mount, as echoes of the Vietnam War follow their every step through the battle-ravaged jungle. Will they find a way out, or will they become the latest victims of a savage and bloody war?
“With a plot involving ghostly Vietnam vets, mystic guides, evil forces, time loops and improbable familial links, this film does not lack for ideas. The problem is that these plot devices, each potentially intriguing in and of themselves, don’t coalesce…” The Movie Waffler
“M.I.A. A Greater Evil might not be too hard to predict once things get going though it works hard to get to its mystical and surprisingly emotive finale. This is an earnest film that employs a few well-tread tropes to good use, deviating from expectations the closer it gets to its well-earned end.” That Moment In
