Eden Lake (2008) Review:

From start to finish this is one the most brutally intense movies that I have ever seen and one of the best British horror films to come out in years!

Kelly Reilly and Michael Fassbinder’s performance as the two lead characters in this film is truly amazing and very well acted. The way they manage to capture their characters in this film is sensational and adds to the realism of the film, because it makes you connect with the characters and feel for them, which some horror movies struggle to do.

This movie does have some intense violence and some disturbing scenes in it, but it has been done in a professional way and not made to look cheap like some exploitation films such as Meir Zachri’s I Spit on Your Grave, Wes Craven’s The Last House on the Left or Nico Mastorakis Island of Death.


For a directional debut James Watkins has impressively managed to create an intense atmosphere that builds up its tension and packs a hard punch in unrelenting thrills and scares that will leave you shaking in fear.

I would highly recommend this to any horror fans that are in to suspense and survival horror and liked films like The Last House on the Left, I Spit on Your Grave, The Descent, Who Can Kill a Child and The Children. Overall this is one of the best British horrors to come out in years and should not be missed!
