September 7th here in the UK&Ireland Julian Gilbey’s indie Horror A LONELY PLACE TO DIE will be released cinematically but on 30th August the movie will close this years Film4 Frightfest!

The movie stars the new queen of horror Melissa George along with Ed Speleers (Eragon), Eamonn Walker(Unbreakable), Karel Roden (RocknRolla), Sean Harris (Harry Brown),and Kate Magowan (Stardust). All part of a group of climbers who head to the Scottish Highlands who discover a young girl locked up in a underground chamber, the little girl can’t speak English and with no idea why she’s been locked up. When the climbers try to help the little girl by taking her back with them , the kidnappers are hot on their heels perusing them. This wasn’t a movie that was on my agenda and even with the fact the trailer does give a little more than we wanted, it doesn’t spoil the notion of why the little girl was locked up which does intrigue me.

Thanks to Kaleidoscope Entertainment who this evening have sent us the new UK trailer and poster for the tmovie which will be released on September 7th in UK and November 11th for USA.

A group of five mountaineers lead by Alison (Melissa George) are hiking and climbing in the Scottish Highlands practising for a more dangerous ascent of the Eiger later in the year.

On the second day of their trek one of the climbers in the group, Ed (Ed Speleers) hears a noise. The group follow the sound and discover an air-pipe sticking out of the ground. They can hear the cries of a person from beneath the earth and soon discover an eight year old girl buried in a small chamber. She is terrified, dehydrated, half-starved and can’t speak a word of English. The group decide to rescue the girl and in their efforts to get her to safety they find themselves being pursued by the girl’s kidnappers, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to take back the girl.
An adrenaline fuelled chase ensues, set against the backdrop of the most remote wilderness, amongst the wildest river rapids and on the rock faces of the most terrifying terrain. Every one of the group is going to have to fight for their lives if they want to make it out alive. Frightening, uncompromising and brutally realistic: this is the ultimate British pursuit thriller.
An original feature from Carnaby Films and co-producer Eigerwand Media, A Lonely Place To Die is the Closing Night film at FrightFest and is released in cinemas on 7th September 2011 by Kaleidoscope Entertainment.
