"... Get your bloody sausage
Neville's Island is a fast-talking,
fast action comedy telling the story of four middle aged businessmen,
sent on a team building exercise in England's Lake District,
who succeed in being the first people to find themselves shipwrecked
Set on a freezing November
weekend, our four men, used only to fighting for survival in
the office, now fighting for survival in the wild, armed with
a single portable telephone, whose dying batteries will allow
only one short call.
As hunger takes hold, they
discover they have just one cold sausage between them, smuggled
out of the hotel that morning.
But there's another problem.
Because there's something on that island with them. In fact,
as the world starts to darken, as losers become heroes and logicians
become lunatics, we find that on this particular November weekend
there is more than one monster on Neville's Island.
