Black Comedy: Four teenagers come to realize that their attitude adjustment based camping program is really a cover for rich elitists who want to hunt and kill them.

For years, the Duke of Edinburgh Camping Expedition has served as a multi-day event in the Scottish Highlands to tame juvenile delinquents through camping related activities. Dropped off by substitute outdoor education teacher Mr. Carlyle (JONATHAN ARIS), teenage friends Dean Gibson (RIAN GORDON), Duncan MacDonald (LEWIS GRIBBEN) and William DeBeauvoir, who fancies himself as the rapper DJ Beatroot (VIRAJ JUNEJA), are the latest to be put through the program.

The odd man out, though, is fellow teen Ian Harris (SAMUEL BOTTOMLEY), a home-schooled kid whose parents think will benefit from the team-building camaraderie where the boys will be left to their own devices to make their way across the Highlands sans, of course, without any help from their smartphones.

Little do they know -- but they quickly learn -- that they've been dropped into a Most Dangerous Game type situation where rich elitists are intent on hunting them down and killing them. That arrives in the form of the half-masked The Duke (EDDIE IZZARD) and The Duchess (GEORGIE GLEN) who look at such juvenile delinquents as vermin that need to be culled from the herd.

Unaware of that, local police officers Sgt. Morag (KATE DICKIE) and PC Hamish (KEVIN GUTHRIE) come to believe -- through a series of misunderstandings including the presence of hallucinogenic rabbit droppings -- that a notorious bread thief is the least of their problems and that they're dealing with terrorists in their midst.

As they try to find those people that don't exist, the teenage boys do their best to avoid the killers, and eventually decide to turn the tables on them.

The black comedy angle might prove enticing for some teenagers who find this on Amazon Prime Video.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
