A young couple take a romantic getaway to a public park which is scheduled to be turned in to a housing development. Their quiet holiday begins to turn in to the weekend from hell when Jenny and Steve encounter a rowdy group of uncouth teenagers. The fore mentioned group of juvenile delinquents proceeds to offend, harass, loot, stalk, torment, and torture the young couple. Steve and Jenny find themselves caught in a deadly game of survival that could have been easily avoided through proper and consistent use of any number of birth control methods.
Eden Lake is a taut and thrilling horror film. It features some of the best, most disturbing retribution scenes I have seen. The acting is quite good, particularly for a Dimension Extreme (Dimension’s Direct to Video line) title. The makeup effects are very good. My only complaint with this film is that I really didn’t care for the ending. Aside from that, it’s a great watch and I would recommend it to all horror fans!
