Storyline

In Glasgow, the teenager single mother Kelly Ann is forced by Father Steven "Steve" Gillis to deliver her baby boy for adoption. Six weeks later, Father Steve organizes a hike in the countryside with the youths David, Louise, Mark and Kelly Ann and leaves them alone in the Scottish Highlands. He shows the meeting point in the map and tells that he would wait for them in an inn on the next day. Out of the blue, Kelly Ann's ex-boyfriend Lee joins the group invited by David. While hiking, the group stumbles with a weird shepherd and later Lee puts the man on the run. During the night, Kelly Ann overhears the cry of a baby and she goes with Lee to a derelict old castle where they find an abandoned baby in the middle of dead bodies. Soon the group is hunted down by a deadly wolf-like creature and has to decide whether they hide or fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Very little CGI is used in the movie, the only exception is the last shot of the film which was considered impossible to shoot without the aid of CG animation. The reason for this was because the director, 'Craig Sratchan' felt that contemporary cinema relied too much on CGI and that traditional animatronics/puppetry FX were no longer being used. He wanted to create a werewolf similar to the beasts seen in 'American Werewolf In London' and 'The Howling', both of which used no CGI at all. See more »

Impressed
21 March 2006 | by joan-114See all my reviews

I am slightly biased in favour of this film, since part of it was shot at my farm. Having seen "Wild Country" from its very rough stage through to the final screening, I am very impressed, especially with the special effects, which were extremely well done, and with the quality portrayals by Martin Compston, Samantha Shields, Peter Capaldi and Karen Fraser. Even knowing the plot, I still held my breath at some scenes. The young actors put on very polished performances and Craig Strachan was a considerate but professional producer for such a cast. Scottish films are few and far between and this is a must see for Scots horror fans.
