Trivia

The castle in which Kelly Ann and Lee find the abandoned baby is actually a real castle in Mugdock Country Park near Glasgow, where a large portion of the film was shot. The exterior of the castle is exactly how it looks in the film, however due to old age, the interior of the castle was crumbling and deemed unsafe for the crew to work in. The interior of the castle was a set built inside an unused factory in Anniesland, Glasgow and most of the set, including the spiral staircase leading to the castle tower was made of polystyrene which was then painted by the art department to resemble real stone.

Wait for it... Wait for it... Wait...it's over?
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am slightly biased in non-favor of this movie having actually seen it. Though it shows potential to have something vaguely resembling a plot, in the end, the viewer is left wondering whether or not the movie has actually started. Time was not an issue for lacking plot. Running at only 72 minutes, there was more than enough time to actually explain SOMETHING. Please explain something. That is why you make movies. The main character, Kelly Ann, could have been played by anyone with a Scotish accent and legs capable of running through random fields in Scotland for extended periods of time. Lee could be played by any semi- to moderately-attractive young male with a Scotish accent as well. Only running in his case was not a requirement. Much of this movie took place during the day time, which made the "wolf" one of the greatest comedic characters I have ever witnessed. And when I say "wolf" what I am trying to say is a half-boar, half mad cow fetus half-breed of UK craziness. (See 'Isolation' for reference and if you want to see a decent horror film from the UK.)
