I was shocked that I liked this British horror/suspense/thriller. I’m not sure what to call it. Its not your conventional horror film but it was tastefully done and started and ended right. It started slow then went ballistic towards the end. Its the type of movie that will leave you on the edge of your seat. It does have its fair share of “torture porn” scenes a la Hostel but its not every scene in the movie. The torque scenes are placed there to evoke a reaction to the audience and it does that in spades.

The movie starts out with a couple, Jenny (Kelly Reilly) and Steve (Michael Fassbender) off on holiday (so the brits call it) to go camping down by Eden Lake which is converted lake from a mining quarry. While there the couple has a run in with some unruly young hooligan kids and it just turns down hill from there. The movie is a case of wrong place, wrong time, and the worst circumstances. I have never seen a bunch of kids as ruthless and nasty as this bunch. This movie will shock you. I felt physically drained after watching this film. Overall I would give it an 8/10. I’m interested in hearing your reaction to the movie. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
