Fantasy Film Fest 2011: A lonely place to die

This movie was nerve-wracking. A group of friends who share a passion for mountaineering meet for a trip into the wilderness. Things quickly go downhill from here (ha!), but compared to your traditional slasher movie (to be fair, this didn't feel like a slasher movie at all), our survivalists try to act intelligently. Hell, the whole story actually made sense!

But whenever I thought the featured cold-bloodedness is unreal, I had to remind myself of the Oslo shooting - which made the movie frighteningly real. Bad timing? Maybe, but still a good decision to show this movie.

Rounded up with an interesting soundtrack and gorgeous nature shots of the Scottish Highlands, the high IMDB rating feels well deserved.

If you want to see this movie, then please don't look out for trailers. It's better without the wannabe spoilers.
