'Lord Of The Flies' is re-imagined as a violent pre-millennial nightmare as a class of teenage Japanese schoolchildren is abandoned on an island, given a variety of weapons, and told that only the last survivor will be allowed to leave. Superbly violent and satirical Japanese cult film that was clearly made to goad the Japanese authorities into action over the country's juvenile delinquency problem.
