Coasters Versus Jafas

A “Reservoir Movies” FILM
WRITTEN BY Benedict Tuckett

In a bid to relaunch the tv show TOP TOWN for the Youtube generation, a pair of JAFA reality-t.v. producers leave the safety of Grey Lynn's trendy cafes for a reccie of the South Island. Stopping at a Greytown petrol station, they offend the legendary hospitality of the region by deeming the cappuchinno to be undrinkable. Thrusting cameras in the locals faces, they can't understand why anyone wouldn't want to be a celebrity. Later, down a dusty backroad, their green Prius runs out of the middle of a dope plantation. A hurtled axe shatters the windscreen forcing the city slickers to hot foot it into the dense bush with the rabid local yokels in hot pursuit.

It's hunting season for the most sought-after white meat. But the Yuppies have a few tricks up their sleeves and the ensuing bloodbath is an even match. For every trap the locals set them, the yuppies retaliate with the power of google. It's axe versus i-phone, when browsers take on the bruisers, its Coasters versus Jafa and in the end, only one...or two, can win!
