THE RETREAT (2011, UK)

Post by Wallace on Wed Dec 30, 2015 1:40 am

Grieving young couple return to a remote island cottage.( It is not stipulated where this island is ,but its cold and they are Brits, so must be off shore of england.) They are the only ones on the island and the cottage is the only building.
The ham radio - only connection to ,mainland - goes dead.

A soldier is washed ashore with head wound.. He informs them that a deadly airborne contagion is killing people off like flies and headed over Europe to here. He quickly takes control over the lackluster husband and starts closing the windows & doors with plastic bags, then boards. The couple ask him why he is boarding it up if its airborne virus. They begin to doubt his story.

Tense film with good actors (David Tennant and Jason issacs were origionally cast, but declined the roles).

Brought Straw Dogs immediately to mind.
