Beyond the Reach (2014)

An adaptation of Deathwatch by Robb White, but not the first. Back in 1974 there was a TV film named Savages (Andy Griffith and Sam Bottoms) which I think is much better. I first saw it back in the early 80s and it took the next 30 years for me to track it down based on what little I could remember - for one thing, there's a really interesting scene with a slingshot that isn't repeated in the newer version. It can be found on youtube and also on a bootleg DVD along with Pray For the Wild Cats, another Andy Griffith TV film. So watch the original rather than this.
