This review is from: Lord Of The Flies [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Lord of the Flies has to be one of the most surprising and horrifying films every created. For someone who has not yet read the book, but is on the verge of buying it, I must say that this disturbing classic is excellent. I'm 13, and I know very few of my friends would appreciate a black and white film, but I reccomend it. When a plane crash lands and children are left bewildered and scared on a deserted, a tribe is formed, the leader being a boy named Ralph. But there are rifts in the congregation of survivors, and manipulative choir boy named Jack seizes the lead. Things then go downhill- fighting, murder, fear- but at the end there is a great twist... A compelling film and definitely worth a see. A good film which experiments with greed, diplomacy and much more.
