A Lonely Place to Die trailer
This film raised a little interest in me when I heard it was filming in Scotland, making use of the fantastic scenery that the country has to offer, and the fact that it starred the always over looked and very good actress Melissa George. Still, I didn't think it would turn out to be much, until now I've seen this trailer.
Filmed throughout the Highlands of Scotland, A Lonely Place to Die stars Melissa George, Ed Speleers, Eamonn Walker, Sean Harris, Alec Newman and Karel Roden and is directed by Julian Gilbey who you might know from Doghouse or Rise of the Footsoldier.
I always like seeing Melissa George in a film, and not for the reasons you might think, Alias, Derailed (Filmstalker review) and WAZ (Filmstalker review) made me realise that she was a damn good actress and forget about Home and Away, but I think it was Waz that made me see her strong performances come to the fore. She's not alone in there though and she has a strong cast to support her.
Here's the blurb for A Lonely Place to Die which presents a rather interesting place to start the story:
A group of mountaineers climbing in the Scottish Highlands find a young Serbian girl buried in a chamber in the forest and becomes caught up in a terrifying game of cat and mouse with her strange kidnappers.
The trailer comes through The Sun, Bloody Disgusting and First Showing, and like First Showing I do wish that the trailer didn't show too much into the film for it looks like a strong sequence that does reveal a little surprise. Sure you know that you'd be expecting it come the moment in the film, but it would have been nice to hit it cold.
I think the rest of the trailer is worth it though, it's showing us something that is true to the locations and looks like it's going to follow other solid outdoor adventure thrillers. Well I don't mean follow, that's a disservice to a film I haven't seen yet, rather I mean that it doesn't turn into something it isn't or shouldn't be.
Have a look at the trailer for A Lonely Place to Die to see what you think. Judging by this I'm thinking the film is suddenly a lot better and more attractive than I thought it would be.
