Eden Lake

Superbly disturbing oikophobic British horror movie in which a pair of fairly standard Claphamites head off to a flooded quarry for a romantic summer weekend, which duly degenerates the moment they find themselves chafing against the feral instincts of a pack of unhuggable hoodies.

The influence of the rednecks in the woods horror genre from the States, where the kids are bad but the parents are worse, is plainly felt.

Grade A-
