Storyline

In Glasgow, the teenager single mother Kelly Ann is forced by Father Steven "Steve" Gillis to deliver her baby boy for adoption. Six weeks later, Father Steve organizes a hike in the countryside with the youths David, Louise, Mark and Kelly Ann and leaves them alone in the Scottish Highlands. He shows the meeting point in the map and tells that he would wait for them in an inn on the next day. Out of the blue, Kelly Ann's ex-boyfriend Lee joins the group invited by David. While hiking, the group stumbles with a weird shepherd and later Lee puts the man on the run. During the night, Kelly Ann overhears the cry of a baby and she goes with Lee to a derelict old castle where they find an abandoned baby in the middle of dead bodies. Soon the group is hunted down by a deadly wolf-like creature and has to decide whether they hide or fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.

Awful and Senseless Plot Point

In Glasgow, the teenager single mother Kelly Ann (Samantha Shields) is forced by Father Steven "Steve" Gillis (Peter Capaldi) to deliver her baby boy for adoption. Six weeks later, Father Steve organizes a hike in the countryside with the youths David (Kevin Quinn), Louise (Nicola Muldoon), Mark (Jamie Quinn) and Kelly Ann and leaves them alone in the Scottish Highlands. He shows the meeting point in the map and tells that he would wait for them in an inn on the next day. Out of the blue, Kelly Ann's ex-boyfriend Lee (Martin Compston) joins the group invited by David. While hiking, the group stumbles with a weird shepherd (Alan McHugh) and later Lee puts the man on the run. During the night, Kelly Ann overhears the cry of a baby and she goes with Lee to a derelict old castle where they find an abandoned baby in the middle of dead bodies. Soon the group is hunted down by a deadly wolf-like creature and has to decide whether they hide or fight to survive.

"Wild Country" is a reasonable slow-paced horror movie with an awful and senseless plot point in the very end. The acting is decent and the Brazilian DVD has subtitles; otherwise it would be very difficult to understand many dialogs. The beast is not a werewolf and is not developed; therefore the viewer never knows what the beast is. Further, how a creature kills so many people without any investigation from the local authorities. The special effects and the cinematography are very poor. As usual in slash movies, there are stupid attitudes: Lee leaves the safety of the tree to be murdered by the creature and the farmer on the motorized tricycle does not listen to Kelly Ann and decides to check what is happening. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Campo Selvagem" ("Wild Country")
