Oct 22 2011- Tonight at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival we attended the screening of the action thriller A Lonely Place To Die. This movie comes from us from British director Julian Gilbey and was written by Julian and his brother Will and stars Melissa George , Ed Speleers and Eamonn Walker .
The movie is about a group of friends out in the Scottish mountains that are out on a rock climbing trip. The scenery in the beginning of the film is breathtaking with sweeping camera shots of the mountain ranges in crisp vivid colors. Within minutes of the film we see a near fatal rock climbing accident that sets the tone for the edge of the seat action that ensues. The 5 friends stumble upon a kidnapped young girl buried in an underground box with a breathing tube. When they decide to rescue her the action gets extremely suspenseful because 2 mean dudes with rifles want the girl back. Without giving too much away there are allot of close calls but the group of 5 starts getting pinged off one by one.
