About the Film
After his father is killed in an altercation with drunken thugs, Salah's world is plunged into darkness. Forced into running the family kebab shop alone, Salah struggles to manage the increasingly rowdy night life and when a fight with an angry customer goes fatally wrong, he finds himself with a dead body on his hands. With no faith in the authorities Salah disposes of the body in the one place he knows best... the kebabs. As the shop's gullible customers devour the new recipe, Salah develops a taste for the kill and seizes the opportunity to turn vigilante and seek revenge on the abusive drunkards plaguing the streets.
Anyone for a kebab?
K-Shop is such a fun movie, loaded with biting satire, chills, scary realism (to anyone that has been on out drinking on the streets of the UK on a weekend), and enough gore to keep the average gore hound happy. I highly recommend this movie, it may not be to everyone's taste (pardon the pun), but as a die hard horror fan I was extremly happy with the movie. Rent it if you are unsure but if you are a lover of the gorier, grittier side of horror this one is definately for you! Garry.
A gory message
K-shop is modern take on Sweeny Todd, well executed for an Independant film, while also touching on important issues.
Obviously it highlights drinking excess, and power of sudden celebrity, but also shows how easily others can be influenced in wanting to the wrong thing!
The lead actor is very good, descending from mild-mannered-son to cleaver-wielding mad-man with gripping ease. There are moments of levity in the film too, mostly ironic, which ease the tension somewhat. Well worth a watch especially for an British Independant movie.
Great film, really enjoyed it.
Good British slasher. A modern day Sweeney Todd. Not a waste of your time.
