- 1h 27min
- Directed by: Ninian Doff
- Cast: Viraj Juneja, Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben, Samuel Bottomley, Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickie, James Cosmo
Four teenagers (Juneja, Bottomley, Gordon, Gribben) arrive in the Scottish Highlands to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, only to find themselves the target of mysterious hunters. Doff’s debut aspires to be funny, but it’s a poorly scripted and casually made stab at comedy horror that offers precious little of either.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
