The story itself is not too complicated. Two unlikely young men, strangers to each other, hook up and take to the road together. One of them is a former gigolo, who is fleeing the wrath of the husband of one of his clients. The other is a formerly married man who lost his wife to her rock star lover and is now hell-bent on seeking revenge.
While enroute to their respective destinations, they run out of gas and are forced to seek assistance in the desolate countryside in which they find themselves stranded. They come upon a house whose inhabitants seem to be a beat off. The house appears to be a retreat of some sort for some pretty dysfunctional odd ducks. Coupled with the fact that their leader seems to engage in some unusual practices and the ghost of a young woman appears to be walking around at all hours of the day or night, it is a highly atmospheric and slightly creepy place in which to be.
The two men are initially determined to leave as soon as possible, but before they know it, the gigolo seems to have become spellbound by the ghost and his companion has become involved with one of the residents of the house. When they try to leave, fate seems to have interjected itself in a way that prevents them from leaving as planned. The film then careens to a startling conclusion that is quite shocking to the senses.Read more ›
1) Director David MacKenzie's debut project was not "The Last Great Wilderness" but "California Sunshine" (1997).
2) Actor Alastair Mackenzie's (Sometimes Credited As: Sam MacKenzie or Alistair Mackenzie) first picture that he stared in was not "The Last Great Wilderness" but was also "California Sunshine" (1997). Alastair Mackenzie played two leading roles previous to this movie but is mostly known for his television work from 1994 to present, his most notable being his lead role in the BBC show, "Monarch of the Glen" (2000 - present). The screenwriter portion is true.
3) Vincente played by Johnnie Phillips is really Jonathan Phillips (Sometimes Credited As: Johnny Phillips or Jonny Phillips but not Johnnie).
4) Vincente does not plan to steal an airplane, he is supposed to meet a friend who plans to fly him from Scotland to Spain to avoid/escape from the thugs.
5) The leader Ruaridh is not played by David Hagman but by David Hayman who has been in over 58 movies, 7 TV shows and directed 9 movies since 1972.
6) Ruaridh takes candid photos of people ... while they are sleeping OR sitting naked on a sofa OR on the floor OR sexually pleasuring themselves - as well as many "normal" candids, portraits and landscapes - but not the toilet. I went back and watched twice in slow motion to make sure.Read more ›

A sly, unpredictable thriller about 2 men seeking refuge at a strange inn, The Last Great Wilderness is a weird hybrid of Rosemarys Baby and The Wicker Man. Read morePublished on February 24, 2014 by Taheen Lopez
THE LAST GREAT WILDERNESS is a different sort of movie. There's a gentle warmth within it that is jarringly interrupted by graphic sex and sadistic violence. Read morePublished on December 24, 2008 by Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein

I thought his movie was well done - across the board: great story, setting, acting, filming. The story and characters draws you in and the ending is very dramatic. Read morePublished on May 22, 2005 by Tim Shenk
This production from Scotland is an entertaining, albeit definitely offbeat production. Director David MacKenzie's debut project sends somewhat mixed signals, being a buddy road... Read morePublished on March 3, 2005 by Lee Armstrong
