The children and the teacher, calm and peaceful by nature, when driven beyond their limits by the kidnappers, eventually respond with a cruelty and fury extending that of their oppressors.
Plot: After being kidnapped by four masked men, a teacher and her students rebel by plotting against the criminals.

True Aussie thriller!
I first remember seeing this after finding the novel in my local library. I would have been around 13, and it was in the 99p rental section of my local video store. The film scared the pants off me and my brother, and at the same time made us marvel at how ingenious and brutal the kids and the teacher could be when pushed to the edge. It made us both learn how to make candles from coke cans, and lethal home made arrows (which my dad confiscated). For those who watched Aussie shows at the times, there were a few familiar soap faces as well as Rachel Ward. This cross between Lord of the Flies and Walkabout is a true slice of thriller movie making. An Aussie gem! Oh and what they do at the end…burrer (shiver!).
Typically lame TV production
Schoolteacher and class of rural bumpkins get kidnapped by cartoonish bunch of thugs, brought to the forest, try to escape, get caught, repeat, until they finally bond as a group and give the kidnappers a taste of their own medicine.
My, the savage nature of the human animal! Sweet little children acting so viciously! Give me a break.
The movie is corny, the children are annoying, the soundtrack is silly, and all that without taking into account the embarrassingly corny, “Yeah, group!” type moments. The only interesting part was the ending, but considering its ineffective buildup it didn’t carry much emotional weight.
If you are intent on seeing a portrayal man-as-beast, go for “Lord of the Rings” instead and let this one gather dust.
