City couple Jenny (Kelly Reilly – Mrs Henderson Presents, Pride and Prejudice, The Libertine) and Steve (Michael Fassbender – 300, Hunger) are eager to get away from it all. The idyllic, picturesque surroundings of Eden Lake seems like the perfect spot for a secluded, romantic weekend in the country until they realise the remote woodland enclosure isn’t as deserted as they’d originally hoped. After being attacked by a local gang of rural delinquents Steve and Jenny’s car is stolen and Steve is brutally tortured. Suddenly the weekend begins to evolve into a sadistic game of survival and escalating violence, with a surprising and shocking climax. Directed by the writer of My Little Eye – James Watkins – Eden Lake is an intense and provocative horror/thriller that relentlessly feeds on modern fears and crosses over into territory that most contemporary films wouldn’t dare to tread. Visit at your own risk.
