Eden Lake (2008)
If you liked Straw Dogs or even the remake this movie will delight you. A "hoodies film" be scared of the Yobs. Between this and Harry Brown I am just crossing England off of my destinations. This directoral debut by James Watkins maintained extrodinary tension and kept the ball rolling till the final seconds.
Micheal Fassbender is the lead and his lovely lady is Kelly Rielly who I did not recongnize despite her impressive list of credits including Flight and two Sherlock Holmes movies. Also notatable Jack O'Connell as the bad bad boy.
I am not a huge fan of this genre, but this was well done and gracefully gory.
Everybody liked this movie. RT gave it 80%.
4 Bloody good stars
