Solo is a 2013 thriller movie directed by Isaac Cravit and starring Annie Clark, Daniel Kash and Richard Clarkin. There are spoilers ahead so be warned.
The movie begins with a young girl called Gillian(Clark) who is going to start working at a summer camp. She little or no experience, but she says that she has. Each worker has to spend a day or two on an island nearby alone to prove their survival skills. Gillian is a little worried about this, but she goes over with the camp owner, Fred(Clarkin). She looks around the place and it is very isolated. There is a rumour going around that the island is haunted because a little girl disappeared there years ago. Fred heads off and leaves her alone. She is spooked when she hears something and she jumps when she sees a man on the island. He tells her that his name is Ray(Kash) and that he thought that she sent out an SOS.
Gillian gets rid of him after a while and she continues on with her job. She gets a fright when Fred's son, Marty turns up. He just came to check on her. They wander around the island. Things take a dark turn when Ray turns up again. It turns out that he is a bit of a psycho and he almost kills Marty and chases Gillian. The rest of the movie is a game of cat and mouse as Ray tries to get Gillian. When he eventually does, she manages to escape and kill him. She takes his boat and heads back to the camp.
This was an interesting movie. There isn't much to it, but it is worth a look. I enjoyed it I have to say and it is cheap, but entertaining. I will give it a 5/10.
