american tourists are crossing a desolated landscape in a rural part
of Georgia. The area was known to be strewn with landmines during the
war. But that seems to be a minor threat compared to the nightmarish
happenings that the afternoon will bring on.

Landmine Goes Click really comes into its own during the latter end of the film. The scenes are headstrong with definite shades of Michael Haneke’s Funny Games. The viewer is initially behind the character leading the scenes but then you begin to question what they’re actually doing and whether their pent up anger is being vented correctly. It’s these scenes which provide the most shocks and culminates with a firm bump to reality that you will not necessarily see coming, especially at the moment it does.
Landmine Goes Click will keep you on the edge of your seat with its tale of morals and retribution, and forces the question, “how would you react if put in the same position?” You can catch LANDMINE GOES CLICK at Film4 FrightFest 2015.
A landmine is all latent potential. It lies hidden, sometimes for years, and then when triggered brings indiscriminate death and devastation to all caught in its vicinity – which also makes it a horrific device for cinematic suspense, as well as a powerful metaphor.
