Storyline

Four friends set out on a motorcycle adventure weekend, clocking up miles in an attempt to outrun their age and urban lifestyles. After bartering with a local land owner for a place to set up camp, they spend the night reminiscing over their wasted youth. The following morning they spot an ominous looking caravan, and decide to investigate. Within minutes, an idiotic prank leads to a series of brutal events and a deadly race for survival. A modern plunge back into the worlds created by movies such as 'Deliverance' and 'Southern Comfort' but with a gritty British twang. Kidnap, murder and a hidden past are just some of the reasons these four adventurers should have stayed at home. An action thriller that will make you question who the villains really are. You cant outrun what's in your blood. Written by Kris McManus and Brian Allen Levine

Trivia

The script was dug out of the cupboard when Finance fell through on a larger concept fight movie 'Break'. Producers Ben Richards (also plays Jon) and Kris McManus decided to go it alone and see how far they could take a movie to release. Funding the movie themselves with the help of some friends. Learning on the Job Both Richards and McManus had come from low to no budget music and promo video production. See more »

Hit City boys: hug Irish Travellers
24 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Living in the City with money at your fingertips doesn't necessarily make you a nice person: take the example of Andy Baxtor (played by Tom Geoffrey), who decides, when on a weekend romp with 3 buddies, to deface someone's home, in this case a grimy caravan owned by Irish travellers. The joke's on Andy and his friends when four grim-looking figures slowly appear over the horizon, ready to wreak vengeance. The bleakest of them is a lantern-jawed bruiser with a limp, a bare-knuckle champion (Martin - played very well by Dean S Jagger) who decides that retribution needs to be wreaked in the ring.

The film's main highlights are the set-piece scenes, particularly the bare-knuckle-sequences that also serve the added function of giving us nice music to listen to. The music, for this (low) budget level of film is pretty good.

The message of the film is mixed, but it certainly pushes its point home in the last act where the violence lives up to the film's 18 certificate.

Definitely not one to watch with your mum.
