The titular hell-hole is a Montana youth offenders’ institution, where three delinquents face the grim task of updating genre daddy Scum for a new generation.
A remake of Alan Clarke’s borstal classic in all but name, the trajectory of Kim Chapiron’s film is chillingly familiar, as a new inmate’s rise to power sparks brutality from the prison hierarchy.
The chief difference is tone: Ray Winstone’s raw power is replaced by the brooding menace of newcomer Adam Butcher.
Chapiron lacks Clarke’s moral anger but he delivers compulsive, cathartic punch.
