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.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Nasty 3 April 2011
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.

By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars You're not feeling rehabilitated? 27 July 2008
Sometimes I like my horror faire served up nice and rare, with plenty of blood left in it to gush out each time you bite in to it. Wilderness is sort of like that, taking a cast of pretty unlikable characters, throwing them in a desperate situation in an isolated environment, and letting the blood flow wherever it may. Admittedly, it can be hard to win me over with a team of bullies and whiners, but director Michael J. Basset proved himself well up to the challenge. Wilderness won't find itself a spot on my list of favorite horror movies, but it does its whole survival horror thing quite well indeed.

The Wilderness of this film's title refers to a rugged, uninhabited island that used to be used for soldier survival training but now offers itself as an ideal place for troubled young people to get a pungent taste of reality and hopefully learn to work together rather than continue in their juvenile delinquent ways. Our gang of misfits land themselves a week's stay there following the most unfortunate death of one of their own. It turns out that they are far from alone there, however. Meeting up with a small, similar group of juvenile delinquent girls doesn't bother anyone, apart from the two group leaders, but finding themselves hunted by a mad killer (and his ferocious dogs) is generally looked upon as bad news all the way around. There isn't a lot of suspense built around the killer's identity, as that is revealed pretty early on. The focus is more on the teens' interaction as their numbers dwindle and the psychotic thought processes that landed them all in a Young Offenders Institution to begin with rear their ugly and increasingly violent heads. Can these malcontents somehow work together as a team in order to survive? Uh, no.
