Very interesting ...I was quite suprised at this movie. I was expecting to see a dumb movie about about an idiot couple being chased by some monster, but actually watched a interesting movie about how rotten kids in gangs have become and how your will to stay alive kicks in. Good script with a very disturbing ending, that shows you the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree. There are some stupied moments, but what movie is perfect?

"Eden Lake is pretty standard survival-against-the- odds fare, the only difference is that instead of the usual monster/alien/chainsaw wielding cannibal or hillbilly redneck is that this time our hapless victims are fleeing from a gang of bicycle mounted pubescent Brits lead by a kid who'd give the Malcolm McDowell character in CLOCKWORK ORANGE a run for his money. Tedious for me but if you're s fan of slasher flicks this film is going to send you into the throes of rapture because it is relentless in it's depiction of violence and degradation.
