This weekend hubby and I watched Eden Lake. Eden Lake is a thriller about a couple who go away for a romantic weekend and encounter a gang of thug teenagers who end up terrorizing them. It is a movie that I had read about while searching for new horror films to watch. It was on a couple of top 10 lists and Rotten Tomatoes has it at 83% among critics (a very high rating for them). Nothing else was out that we wanted to see so we decided to take a chance on this film that stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) and Kelly Reilly (Flight).
It was dark material and that turned hubby off. I understood why he didn’t like it but I appreciated how far the director and the story went. It is not a happy movie by any means but if you are looking for a suspenseful film that will keep you breathless in it’s entirety, Eden Lake is a good choice. Here is the trailer. Have a good week!
