Editorial Reviews

In this unpredictable and shocking coming-of-age story, three high-school girls on a weekend getaway impulsively take a menacing trespasser captive when he shows up at their remote mountain cabin. Fueled by desperation, alcohol and a childhood story about a mountain murder, Ruth, Deb and Kate endure a long, terrifying night with their captive before it all erupts in a dramatic and deadly end. Shot on location in the spectacular Colorado Rocky Mountains, Wilderness Survival for Girls uses edge-of-your-seat suspense to explore the conflicting inner lives of teenage girls as the boundaries of their friendship, their secret desires and their newfound taste for cruelty are tested. Fans of THIRTEEN, GIRL INTERRUPTED and SWIMMING POOL will love WILDERNESS SURVIVAL FOR GIRLS!

This movie was not my cup of tea.
Marcie Spires
I would have liked to see either a twist or surprise to give the movie a little more power but it just never came.

The film started out like the usual slasher flick, but then turned 180 degrees. Instead of looking at the scary external threat, it looked inwards at the teenage girls themselves - their fears, tortured friendship politics, sexuality and so on. Kind of ambitious, but the acting was a revelation, down to split-second facial expressions that gave away the insecurity, longing and occasional resentment beneath the old-friends-hangin'-out exterior. This a subtle story, with a lot of meat for late-night discussions of social/parental influences and how they shape everything from our self image to our attitudes towards the opposite sex and the way we react to unfamiliar/scary situations. Apart from being fresh and really unique, it certainly makes you look more closely at your friends' eyes to make sure they're not hiding something from you!

Wilderness Survival For Girls (2004) is a film that explores the relationships between three friends, and how they handle a crisis, while on a retreat at a cabin in the woods. The movie does a good job of character development, and portraying the dynamic between the three girls, but there are some issues with the path the story takes, when they are faced with a threatening situation.

Ruth (Jeanette Brox) has invited her best friend Deborah (Megan Henning), and her friend Kate (Ali Humiston), to join her at her family's cabin in the Colorado woods. That night while the girls are gathered in the living room, a strange man named Ed (James Morrison) enters the cabin. Ed has been living in the cabin and doing some hunting, but finds himself facing the barrel of his own rifle, as Kate orders the other girls to tie him to a chair.

The girls spend the night in the living room watching over him, but an argument breaks out, and Deborah runs out of the cabin. Kate decides to follow her, leaving the rifle with Ruth, to keep watch over Ed. Adept at reading the situation, Ed begins to gain Kate's confidence, and eventually convinces her to untie him. When the other girls return, Ed has the rifle, and two of the girls quickly find themselves tied to chairs. Someone will die, in what will be a life changing evening for everyone involved.

With veteran actor James Morrison solidly anchoring the film, the young cast does a very good job, mostly coming off as believable and real. Megan Henning and Jeanette Brox are particularly convincing, capturing the angst and uncertainty of youth. Husband and wife, Eli Despres and Kim Roberts, wrote and directed the movie, which was shot on location at their cabin.

Quite frankly, I'd pay to watch him read the phone book. But it turned out to be a very interesting little independent film. Shot by a husband and wife team and made on a literal shoestring, it takes the conventions of teenage slasher films and the angst of teenage coming-of-age films and combines the two for a fairly satisfying bit of storytelling. I even watched it a second time with the director commentary on, and that was almost as good as the movie, itself. It's essentially a primer for making a low-budget independent film. Plus, all the actors (there are only four) are very good. James and Jeanette Brox, the girl who plays Ruth, are better than very good. Their one-on-one scenes are just riveting.

SPOILER AHEAD!

The reason that I only gave the movie 4 stars is that I occasionally found the girls to be so incredibly stupid that it really grated on me. I understand that teenage girls aren't usually rocket scientists, and I realize that these three girls were also stoned/drunk, which is never conducive to making good choices, but Kate and Deb's decision to leave Ruth alone with the man, not once, but twice, made me want to throw something at the screen. There's stupid, and then there's terminally stupid. On the other hand, that decision gives the audience more of the twisted emotional pas de deux between the man and Ruth, and it is a dance that is well worth watching.

Three girls in an isolated cabin, one mysterious stranger. You know the drill. Or do you? "Wilderness Survival for Girls" is astoundingly low-budget. I'm talking a camera and food for the four cast members and that's about it. But it delivers a pretty solid experience that I can say was fairly unique and unexpected for what I assumed would be a slasher flick.

Our three girlfriends celebrate graduation by vacationing in the mountains. When they arrive at their cabin, they find a dead fox in their fridge. Is that ever a good omen? Next order of business: nude sunbathing, my favorite spectators' sport. The girls are cute, likable, and lighthearted, but they've got issues. There's the virgin (you know the type), the wild child, and the hot chick with glasses. I really like hot chicks with glasses. Anywho, faux creepiness happens (wild child is a prankster) and then after toking out and trying to get a round of scary stories going, a man suddenly enters the house. The girls hold him at gunpoint and tie him up. This is where the film gets damned unpredictable. The man has done nothing wrong. He has simply been living in a cabin he thought abandoned and come home after a long day of hiking. The girls are afraid if they let him go, he will come back and go all Friday the 13th on them. No phone, car won't start; what to do? Apparently, of you are wild child and glasses girl, you get into an argument and then go far away to make out. Fact: in any group of three hot girls, any two that are left alone will make out with each other. It's science. And when I say "it's science" I mean I made it up. Don't burst my bubble, 'kay?
