A police psychologist gets her to reveal her story: A month earlier: three rebellious teenagers - Mike, Frankie and Geoff are trying to ditch the school field trip to Wales. The school nerd Martin helps them out by allowing them to stay in an old war bunker for the three days on the condition that his friend Liz joins them.

And then there's all those exciting exams to look forward to.
Way to look on the positive side.
No, no, no. I've got a hard-on for these exams, they're great.
You've got a hard-on for everything.
Not for you, mate.

The film was cut by the distributor to qualify for a "15" rating in the UK. The cuts include the re-dubbing of the word 'cunt'. Ironically, the 'deleted scenes' section on the UK DVD release is rated '18', therefore earning the DVD an '18' overall, even though the film is only a '15'. The same version of the film was released worldwide, so an uncut version/director's cut DVD sadly isn't available anywhere. See more »
My total impression of this film was that it was a feature length tv drama that some how ended up as a film.
Not having been to an exclusive mixed private school like the one portrayed, I can't comment on it's feasibility but it looked like an unlikely fabrication. Thora Birch (who seems to have no parents) is unnecessarily cast as an English pupil and is lumbered with carrying the entire weight of this amateurish, predictable and unoriginal production. She deserves far better than this.
There are two versions of what happens to the four pupils enjoying a weekend away in a stinking, dusty (but fully plumbed and serviced) bunker. This confused me and I couldn't see how the first related to the rest of the story. The strong five main characters are let down by flimsy one dimension police types, drawn from the serfeit of dull UK tv police dramas and may as well have been cardboard. In addition, the Director laughingly attempts cliched visual manipulations as an after-thought that add nothing.
Watching this is a let down and as much as I hate to say it being British, I think it would have been better made by and in the US.
