Storyline

After being forced to give her baby boy up for adoption, Glasgow teenager Kelly Ann decides to go on a cross country hike through the Scottish Highlands with a group of friends. Kelly Ann's ex - boyfriend Lee then appears uninvited in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. Things do not go to plan however when Kelly Ann & Lee find an abandoned baby in the ruins of an old castle. As the teenage group attempt to get the baby to safety, a vicious, wolf-like beast appears from the darkness and begins to stalk the group, picking them off one by one. The group soon realise that they have to kill the creature or be killed themselves. Written by pinhead42

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.

Impressed
21 March 2006 | by (Scotland) – See 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.
