A Perfect Getaway is a 2009 suspense thriller from Rogue Pictures and writer/director David Twohy (The Arrival, Pitch Black, Below).

Cliff and Cydney befriend the former marine Nick (Timothy Olyphant, Scream 2, Justified) in the trail and then they meet three girls that tell them that the police are chasing a man and a woman that had slaughtered a couple in honeymoon in Oahu, removing their teeth and finger tips.
