Quench is a 2007 independent film directed by Zack Parker. The movie tells the story of four teenagers and their mysterious journey through the woods, which is filled with unexpected twists and turns. The movie begins with a glimpse of a crystal clear lake where four friends - Gavin (Bo Barrett), Nate (Benjamin Riley), Karen (Mia Moretti), and Kerri (Lindsay Frame), decide to embark on a summer vacation that leads them into the dense woods surrounding the lake.

Their adventure quickly takes a strange turn following a sudden storm that leaves the group stranded in the woods. They soon discover that they may not be alone in the forest after all when they come across a strange watering hole. As the four friends struggle to find a way out of the woods, they realize that the mysterious water has given them extraordinary abilities.

Gavin, the group's natural leader, finds himself with the power to manipulate the environment around him. Nate, the skeptic, gains incredible strength and agility while Karen discovers she has the power of telekinesis. Kerri, the quiet girl of the group, finds that she has the ability to heal others.

The group tries to understand what is happening to them and why they are the ones who have been chosen to receive these strange powers. As they navigate the forest, they encounter a series of obstacles and challenges, including a menacing group of strangers who are also seeking the supernatural spring.

The group's allegiances are tested as they try to uncover the mystery behind the spring and their newfound powers. They realize that they must work together to secure their survival while trying to resist the temptation to use their powers for their own benefit.

The cinematography in Quench is simply amazing. The brilliant use of light and color creates a visually stunning world that transports the audience into the forest alongside the characters. The soundtrack also manages to complement the visuals perfectly, creating an immersive experience for the viewer.

The acting in Quench is solid, particularly given that this was most of the cast's first foray into acting. Bo Barrett and Benjamin Riley do particularly well creating a believable dynamic between their two characters, who represent different approaches to accessing and utilizing their newfound abilities.

As the story unfolds, Quench is not simply a supernatural thriller, but also a meditation on the struggle between self-preservation and trust in others. The film ultimately delivers a potent message about the power of teamwork over self-interest.

Quench succeeds in delivering a fresh take on the "teenagers with powers" genre. By placing the emphasis on character development and interpersonal tension rather than just special effects, the movie manages to create a unique and memorable experience.

Quench is a 2008 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.3.
