Film 103: The Last Great Wilderness
I wasn't aware of this smashing little film until last week when I found a mention that it had been screened at a film club's 'Scottish Horror' evening with The Wicker Man and Wild Country.
It's a sort of Wicker Man meets The Old Dark House about two mismatched blokes who find themselves in an isolated commune of damaged people.
Creepy and darkly funny for the most part, with some quite nasty violence right at the end. Very enjoyable, but hard to adequately summarise.
*On the other hand, I've just watched Cold Earth then discovered that the supposed 2008 UK release seems to be fictitious so that becomes a 2009 film. You win some, you lose some.
