I have to admit, I was surprised by how solid this trailer looks. It’s a mostly no-name cast, and a mostly unheard-of director, and initially it seemed like it had direct-to-DVD or TNT movie written all over it. But it may well be a little more than that.
A group of five mountaineers are hiking and climbing in the Scottish Highlands when they discover a young Serbian girl buried in a small chamber in the wilderness. They become caught up in a terrifying game of cat and mouse with the kidnappers as they try to get the girl to safety
The cinematography’s pretty sweet, and the story looks fairly gripping. It stars Melissa George, Ed Speleers, Sean Harris, and Karel Roden. Of that group, George is the only one I’ve heard of. I know a lot of people have a sort of inexplicable hatred for her — personally, I’ll always like her for her small role in Dark City. I liked her in the almost very good 30 Days of Night, and after seeing her in the surprisingly effective Triangle, I’m wiling to buy into her in this.
Here’s the trailer. Whaddaya think?
Here’s the kind of crappy poster:
All of that said, A Lonely Place To Die is a lousy title. It sounds like a shitty book you’d pick up at an airport kiosk and leave on the plane with no regrets.
