This is a good - if a somewhat unusual - film, that loosely sits within the 'slasher' genre. It concerns a group of young male offenders going on a camping expedition to a remote and uninhabited island off the coast of Britain. Unfortunately the prison service has not properly coordinated things - and it turns out that a group of young female offenders is also camping on the island ... of course, this makes for tensions and romantic liaisons. Until half way through the film, the key theme appears to be the relations between the offenders - in terms of hierarchy and bullying. There are a couple of nasty thugs who seek to dominate, and constantly push the other youths around. In and of itself, this is an interesting plot ... but then, quite suddenly, the camping young offenders (and the officers in charge of them) are violently attacked by an unknown assailant.

At this point, the story shifts focus - as the youths seek to survive. Yet no matter what they do, their numbers dwindle as their enemy stalks them - killing them one by one. In this wilderness setting, it takes both intelligence and a willingness to fight to stay alive. And so the film culminates in a final battle between the few remaining youths and their attacker.

While this movie describes itself as a 'horror', it's not (unless the term simply describes horrible occurrences). It's more of a thriller, centered on survival. It's a cross between "First Blood" and "Lord of the Flies". And, although it's a low-budget movie, it presents an intriguing story with great acting. If this is the sort of film you enjoy, then I highly recommend it.

We've all the heard the term "so bad, it's good" in regards to lesser films. I'd say "Wilderness" just about fits into this category. It's very nearly a comedy masterpiece, with laughable sound effects and editing, often bizarre dialogue and performances, a mixture of decent gore effects and embarrassing CGI with cheesy stabs of tacky sounding music. This all comes together to create an oddity you'll either laugh at, cringe at or in my case, both.

In summary, I'd rate "Wilderness" a high 3 (38%), undoubtedly a poor movie on many levels, however the comedy value presented and its roguish charm may make it watchable for some.

In juvenile detention, inmate Dave commits suicide after being abused with his friend Lindsay by bullies Steve and Lewis.

The governor sends them to an uninhabited island to improve their relationships under the command of monitor Jed.

They meet another camp with female juveniles under the command of veteran soldier Louise and they camp in another area.

They are attacked by a pack of dogs and a mysterious man with a cross-bow, wearing camouflage, they join forces fighting to survive under the leadership of Callum, a new inmate....

For a horror film, released straight to DVD, which expresses on the cover how much gore is in the film and features a key character with body parts missing, its a pretty good, well made movie.

And that's thanks to the brilliant cast involved in the film. Pertwee and Reid are good, but its Kebbel and Wight who really shine, especially Wight, as you instantly despise his character, proving that he is a great actor.

The rest of the support is a little generic, you get your giant with the heart of gold, and the inclusion of another female camp is just there to upset the apple cart, as just a camp of angry boys would be a little bit boring.

The film almost plays like a Neil Marshall movie, and when we get the final revelation, it doesn't hit as hard as it would like to.

But other than that, its solid stuff, the second act is tense, and like the cover says, its gruesome, but not in your face like other gore movies released in 2006.

Cruelly overlooked on initial release, if you find this movie on TV, or streaming, watch it, especially if you like slasher movies of the eighties

i bought this for my boyfriend and we watched it this evening. I have to say i was pleasantly surprised, for within the first ten minutes i had assumed it was going to be a poorly made, brit film about wanna be gangsters who commit various crimes, however i was wrong. The different ways in which the certain characters are killed was cleverly thoughtout and i have to say some of the deaths were certainly intriguing if not very gruesome!!!you'll understand when you see the dogs!!!
all in all a good overall performace and an interesting take on young offenders life, i just hope i'm never sent to an island like that for commiting a crime!!!!

By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 April 2011
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.
