This wickedly funny horror comedy marks the feature directorial debut of former music video director Ninian Doff. It follows a trio of wayward Glasgow schoolboys who, as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, embark on a character-building trip to the Scottish Highlands, alongside a strait-laced camper.
Hilarity ensues as the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy figure (played rather brilliantly by Eddie Izzard). Hot on their trail, too, is a group of hapless police officers – played by Kate Dickie, Alice Lowe and Kevin Guthrie – who believe them to be a terror gang.
Watch out for the presence of legendary Scottish actor James Cosmo, who delights as a hip hop-loving local farmer.
