||Save Our Souls|
Lord of the Flies video This film is one of the most frightening things you can see, forget everything else if you truly want to be scared this film will take you back to when you were 10 years old and make you realise that you would've been one of the killer savages. Lord of the Flies film The feeling that what occurs in the film is what would really occur is overwhelming, and the boys who play in the film are so natural that you could almost believe that it was a documentary about what happens when children are left alone. The depiction of the two egos of God and the devil coming up against each other, is ideally placed in the hands of children-the innocent. Ralph is a fair and benign leader, whilst Jack is always pushing for what he wants and appealing to the other boys' wild natures. Jack wins over the other boys and things spiral out of control, with "The Beast" appearing everywhere. The essence of the movie is encaptulated by this one phrase from it "The Beast is in us"

Lord of the Flies review This is the story of a group of young english schoolboys who find themselves castaways on a remote island paradie after their plane has crashed off of its coastline.
slowly, they begin to divide int 2 groups and it becomes te classic battle of good vs evil. But son, Ralph
begins to realise that the group of good boys are changing over to the bad boy side follwing his once upon a time fiend Jack who now leads them.
When Ralph finds that he is the only good boy left, after witnessing brutal actions inflicted on the others by Jack, he is horrified.
Will Ralph survive when Jack and his entire band gear up for the ultimate hunt ? A classic drama indeed.
