|This riveting TV survival horror is a thrilling variation on William Golding's Lord of the Flies.
In rural Australia, schoolteacher Sally (Ward) begins a routine day of class with her students...when several masked gunmen ambush and kidnap the group for ransom.
But after the criminals transport the frightened children and their teacher to a secluded mountain range, Sally and the young ones find they must fight their captors for survival...even to the bloody end.
Stellar acting from all involved easily carries off this adventure-turned-horror pic; Ward (of Night School and The Final Terror) delivers a particularly spectacular performance.
A well calculated atmosphere of suspense permeates throughout, underscored by a darkly triumphant ending.
