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 Bar-knuckle boxing sequence did not exist in the script until a week into shooting when director Kris McManus suggested it after the film-makers were told the Barn they had been lent as a production base had hosted Traveller brawls in the past. McManus choreographed the fight with it 2 pugilists Shane Sweeney (Chris) and Dean Jagger (Martin) in one afternoon then shot the scene the same evening over six hours. Extras were called in with virtually zero notice and as a result many of the fight crowd are the same actors from the opening pub scene. In fact Tom Geoffrey (Andy Baxtor) and Alex Edwards (Dan Marsden) are also in the crowd disguised in hoods to make up the numbers. See more »

An Improver

For the first 15 or 20 minutes this looked every inch a no budget, student project. If you were watching it on DVD or TV you might even give up on it. Don't.

The film improves dramatically as it goes on.

It adds tension, better characterisation and a reasonable slice of horror too.

There is a cracking bare knuckle fight scene, something that no film about travellers would seem to be without.

The performances are mixed, but certainly most of the characters are believable, hinting at a depth beyond their on screen actions.

On the balance a film worth watching. Give it a go, but stick with it!
