“If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise.”
Rupert Bryan’s The Hike is described as a relentless, traumatic feature length horror film set in the British countryside about a girls camping trip that goes terribly wrong.
The pic features a pretty awesome cast including Tamar Hassan (Kick Ass), Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), Ben Loyd Holmes (Torchwood), Shauna Macdonald (The Descent), Zara Phythian, Daniel Caren, Jemma Bolt, Domonic Le Moignan, Stephanie Siadatan, Lisa Marie Long, Adam Young and Joe Nuttal.
“Kate (Zara Phythian) is back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan after seeing her soldier boyfriend die in combat. She has reunited with her best friends back home, who whisk her away on a `healing’ camping trip to a picturesque and remote area of the British countryside.
The girls make their way into the woods in search of the perfect place to camp, to forget their sorrows, and enjoy their time together. On their hike, they come across a mysterious group of Eastern Europeans, who seem to be living off the land. They quickly move on to avoid an awkward confrontation and continue to their destination.
When they reach Sunset Point, they meet a group of rock climbers and form a quick and flirtatious friendship. But when darkness falls, and one of their friends goes missing, the girls will be forced to rely on each other, and the rock climbers to find their friend and get out of the woods in one piece. ”
