Reviews

Violent British horror. A group of young offenders are given the chance to rehabilitate themselves and learn self-sufficiency skills when they are sent off to a boot camp on a remote island. What they discover is a forbidding landscape inhabited by a vicious psychopath, who starts hunting them and picking them off using an array of horrific traps. Against the odds and the elements, the young prisoners have to learn to work together in order to survive.

Format: DVD
This film is actually pretty good. I wouldn't exactly call it a horror, (although I see why it's been lumped into that category), and fans of `Spec-ops' or `survival' flicks will lap this up (no dog pun intended).

What we have is a group of young offenders let out for a boot camp style holiday on a remote Island. What follows is a `Deliverance' style hunt film, with some surprisingly good sequences in it for what one presumes is a low-budget British flick.

Some reviewers say too much was revealed early on - I don't think so - and I actually liked the fact that we're let in on `what's what', as this takes the film away from being a mediocre horror, and took it into a new and terrifying territory - a whole other genre of film: The Hunt.

In my opinion this worked much better and made the film feel much more original. Plus being a fan of all things military, for me it made it much more believable and scary, too. Monsters and ghost I don't believe in - but vengeful, highly trained killers... that's a possibilty.

There were some great action sequences and stunts, and on the whole the acting was pretty good. One or two of the youngsters failed to perform - but this is understandable as they were young, and a lot was being asked of them. All in all though, I found 'Wilderness' to be a pleasant surprise... if 'pleasant' is the right word to use.

The cover advises you: don't go down to the woods today.... I'd agree. I'd say: go down to the shops and pick up a copy of this. 8/10

Format: DVD
Wilderness takes the slasher theme of naughty teenagers and changes them into nasty young offenders. After bullying another prisoner to death they get to travel to a Scottish island for some survival skills, only to find survive is exactly what they need to do. The identity of the obligatory stalker (complete with John Rambo collection of traps, crossbows and a pack of human-flesh-seeking Alsatians) might have been a mystery to those who slept through the first 20 minutes but just to make certain one of the chacters tells us. The film is not about working out who did it, but rather how can they be stopped.

Although one can spot the likely survivors, the characters are well-played with no maudlin death-bed conversions; the chief bully dying as he lived. The film has a DOG SOLDIERS feel and not just because it has Sean Pertwee.

A guilty pleasure.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A good film essentially; a cast of characters you would be hard pressed to feel any sympathy for but this is not detrimental to the film. A group of young offenders go to a prison service owned remote island, a kind of outdoor team building/boot camp affairs. I did find it a bit unrealistic that half a dozen very dangerous offenders (murderer, bank robber, serial sex offender etc) would just be accompanied by one staff member, but small point.
They meet some females who are basically there for the same reason and the film revolves around an individual with an array of weapons and dogs hunting them down. Strangely I thought, the 'maniac' and his motive are revealed very early on, soon after the first killing which does take some of the suspense and guesswork out of it especially as there were another couple of strands which could have been used to keep the viewer guessing. Very watchable for what it is, has been compared to scum, dog soldiers and Lord of the flies but is not quite as good as any of those.
I would say be wary of another review that reveals the protaganist but it is revealed so prematurely anyway it probably wouldn't matter too much if you found out beforehand. All in all good effects, nothing wrong with the story and acting fine, worth a watch.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By William Mason TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Nov 2014
Format: DVD
This is a highly competent British horror/thriller.
A group of teenage male, juvenile delinquents are housed in a Detention Centre, Moorgate Young Offenders. They bully one of the boys, David, to such an extent that he commits suicide. As tough love, the six culprits are sent on a survival course on an uninhabited Scottish island, accompanied by one of the prison guards, played by Sean Pertwee.
The group of ASBO youths meet up with a group of female young offenders, comprising two teenage girls and their supervisor. The two groups start to investigate the island forest and come across a dead tramp, who's throat has been slashed.
Before long, the teenage miscreants and their adult escorts come under violent attack from an unseen assailant, an elusive adversary who uses a crossbow, mantraps and killer attack dogs.
The film is very nicely shot on the scenic island, but it's somewhat handicapped by a lack of any likeable characters. The young offenders include drug dealers, a murderer, a sex offender, and an armed robber. It's very hard to feel any sympathy when bad things start happening to them. Furthermore, there is little character development with the teenagers, although one of them, Callum, who's a forthright and highly combative alpha male, has an interesting personality. The nastiest youth, Steve, is particularly obnoxious, and I found myself wanting him to be on the receiving end of the crossbow, a mantrap, and the German Shepherds, all at the same time...
The kill scenes are quite unsettling, especially with the dogs. There's also a neat twist in the tale towards the end, which I never saw coming, and which you won't be able to predict.
