Eden Lake

I missed the opening movie of the Fantasy Filmfest (September 3 - 10, 2008) yesterday as it was sold out. At least they screened the movie late at night too.
In "Eden Lake" a couple gets harassed by local youths and the situation turns into a living nightmare. The movie keeps getting worse and I could have used someone sitting next to me, so I wouldn´t have had to jump at the unknown neighbor all the time. At one scene he even got up and said that he would get another beer and return after the horrible. He couldn´t take it anymore.
EDEN LAKE lulls you in the beginning, then sends you through a complete nightmare before a totally unexpected ending. It’s horrifying and credible in a way few genre movies are.” James Watkins, director EDEN LAKE
I´m off to the next two movies tonight!
