Trivia

Under Scots law there was a special category of murder, known as "murder under trust", which was considered to be even more heinous than ordinary murder. The Glencoe massacre was a clear example of such. See more »

Underrated historical movie
14 August 2011 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent treatment of a notorious incident in Scottish history. We know exactly what's going to happen - it's in the title. But this looming sense of dread balances out any couthiness in the film.

It also avoids being a complete melodrama, by showing the perpetrators as human beings, the complexities and accidents that led to the situation etc. The baddies are conflicted, to say the least. (Cynics would say that's because it's directed by a Campbell!) This makes it a much more rounded film.

Much of the film is on location, with outdoor scenes in Glencoe itself.

The film is actually very short... under an hour. It makes an excellent companion piece to Peter Watkin's "mockumentary" Culloden. And no, it doesn't blame the English for everything either...
