New Release Review - Retreat


Directed by: Carl Tibbetts
Starring: Cillian Murphy, Thandie Newton, Jamie Bell


Murphy and Newton play a couple who head to a remote island to try and save their ailing marriage.
When they find Bell washed up on the shore he tells them he escaped the mainland, fleeing from an airborne virus that is spreading throughout the world, and proceeds to barricade them inside their cottage.
What we have here is really just "Dead Calm" in a cottage. Bell is excellent and there are some nice twists along the way which end with a homage to "Night Of The Living Dead" but don't expect anything you haven't seen before.
