Editorial Reviews

The inmates of a Young Offenders Institution are beyond help: too tough to handle, too far gone to be brought back. Their prison is a dumping ground for the worst in the system... until they are sent to the wilderness. They are dropped into an alien world of dense forests, treacherous rivers and jagged coastline. For one week they have to learn to work as a team, to develop character and maybe even discover a new respect for each other. But there's someone else on the island who wants to teach them a bigger lesson, and they are about to become his prey. Following the gruesome slaughter of their team leaders, the young criminals find themselves alone and cut off from any chance for help. The only way to survive is to pull together against this hunter and his pack of savage dogs as he picks them off one by one.

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.

Surprisingly effective and sometimes terrifying British horror thriller. Takes a standard horror movie premise and ups the anti with some unpredictable twists and turns. The plot is simple and straightforward, the locale atmospheric, and the direction taut. I had never heard of this film so was immediately surprised by the strong performances and gut wrenching action. A good hybrid between the interesting horror movie "American Gothic" and the action classic "Deliverance". This one goes straight for the throat and is pretty unrelenting as far as violence; so not for the faint of heart. This is a wild ride and I'm wildly enthusiastic about recommending. A great discovery, for those that take their meat raw.

I caught this movie one night after work with a few friends,and i thought it was pretty bad ass. I was really into the story i thought it was kindof a different kind of plot and story,which were both great. I liked the secenery where they shot,it was really nicley done. The plot was nice and the gore was really nice. If you want to catch a horror kind of movie then this is one worth checking out.

Looking to support British horror efforts as much as I can, I bought a film that seems to have escaped my attention. Wilderness is a 2006 British horror film directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D) and with a script by Dario Poloni (Black Death).

Wilderness stars Alex Reid (The Descent, Arachnid), Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes, RocknRolla) , Stephen Wright (Highlander: The Source) and Adam Deacon (Jack Falls, Dead Set) and horror regular Sean Pertwee (The Descent, Dog Soldiers, The 4th Reich, Doomsday) and comes with the following synopsis:
"Sent away on a military boot camp, a group of young offenders arrive on an uninhabited island only to find they are not alone. A psychopathic hunter lies in wait, snaring his victims with imaginative booby traps, ravenous dogs & some truly deadly weaponry.
From the director of Deathwatch, horror and violence bursts onto the screen in this masterfully choreographed survival thriller."

I've mentioned it numerous times before but to my mind, stories of hunting humans have been a horror staple on the screen for as long as there have been movies. The film adaptation of Richard Connell's Hounds of Zaroff, which was turned into The Most Dangerous Game in 1932 could be seen as the granddaddy of them all, spawning numerous imitators from the poor (Steve Austin's The Condemned) to one of my personal favourites, Predator, going via Van Damme's Hard Target and to the box office record breaker The Hunger Games, based on the books by Suzanne Collins.
Wilderness has been described as "Scum meets Battle Royale" but I don't think that's quite accurate...

Shot in Northern Ireland, Wilderness (2006) is a gritty and gory thriller, centered on the adventures of a group of inmates from a boy's juvenile prison, who face unexpected danger, while serving disciplinary punishment on a remote island. Although the synopsis on the DVD makes it sounds like all male struggle for survival, that is not the case.

When an bullied inmate at Moorgate Young Offenders Institute commits suicide by cutting his wrists, the members of the dead boy's dorm are sent to a remote (and quite large) island for some disciplinary action. The group of six lads under the supervision of prison official Jed Wyler (Sean Pertwee), soon discover that they are not alone on the island. Mandy (Lenora Crichlow) and Jo (Karly Greene), two inmates from a girl's detention facility are there with Louise (Alex Reid) their supervisor.

The two groups come together, after a tramp living on the island is found dead with his throat ripped open. Callum (Toby Kebbell) a newcomer, is suspected of the crime. One of the boys disappears as a prelude to the group being viciously attacked, by a hail of deadly arrows, and a pack of wild dogs. The assault leaves the shaken group without any supervision, and they struggle to establish some kind of order, and find a way to survive against a ruthless and well-prepared opponent.

The story that could have taken the all male Lord of the Flies route, instead is another routine teenagers in distress in the woods tale. Instead of being violent hardcases, the boys are mostly passive, except for Steve (Stephen Wight) who exhibits resentment for authority. Steve's buddy Lewis (Luke Neal) is the most physically imposing, but is pretty passive after hooking up with Jo. Lindsay (Ben McKay), is the weak sniveling type.
