Following a plane crash a group of schoolboys find themsleves on a deserted island. They appoint a leader and attempt to create an organised society for the sake of their survival. Democracy and order soon begin to crumble when a breakaway faction forms and quickly regresses to brutal savagery with horrifying consequences.
Peter Brook's classic adaptation of William Golding's novel has lost none of the impact it made when given an 'X' certificate on its 1963 release. Shot with a raw style, the film has a chilling air of realism and still retains the power to shock.

Adapted from the William Golding novel. This Americanized 1990 version pits the young boys, survivors of a plane crash, against nature and eventually each other. The consensus that rules should be maintained in the wilderness is soon forgotten as one boy threatens the group's coexistence and even the very lives of the individuals when he begins to draw members into a separate group.
