cinema: INMATE'S FIGHT FOR LIFE IS DEAD ENTERTAINING; WILDERNESS (15) * * * *.
SHOWING at selected cinemas this week is this British survival horror movie.
Following the suicide of a fellow inmate, an unsavoury bunch of juvenile delinquents are taken to a remote prison island by Sean Pertwee in director Michael 'Deathwatch' Bassett's second film after Deathwatch.
They're supposed to be learning lessons about life - but a raving psychopath is lying in wait with only death in mind.
From a slow start, the body count rockets while the ever-diminishing number of lads turn increasingly upon themselves in the face of some grisly but entertainingly-inventive killings.
Bizarrely captivating - if you like this sort of reality thing - and mysteriously only a 15-certificate, despite all the blood and gore.
