I’m unsure why Fortress is listed in the Horror category as it isn’t really a horror film, but I suppose it has many horrific elements to it. Anyhow.. Fortress is a beautiful yet disturbing film about the human instinct to survive. It shows how humans can only be pushed so far and how we are no different to anyone else – we will kill too if we have to. There are so many emotional and beautiful scenes and a few made me want to cry. The part where the kids and the teacher brutally kill one of the kidnappers is very disturbing – it’s not often you see children killing an adult. The masks used by the kidnappers are also very disturbing – the Santa Claus mask in particular since Santa is meant to be a symbol of innocence, yet here it symbolises evil.
Seek out this film at all costs! It’s amazingly underrated and better than many films out there.
