Plot – Spoilers:
Steve takes his girlfriend Jenny for a weekend getaway to a lake, deep in the English woods. The place is soon to be converted into a gated community and Steve figures it’s the best place to propose to her, away from humanity and all.

Jenny on her part isn’t that impressed with the idea of going to what was once an abandoned quarry. Her tacit disapproval sends Steve into a tizzy trying to impress and assert his masculinity in a countryside town where the folk are rough and contemptuous of his city ways.

Just when the romantic couple finally begin to enjoy the remote lake, a gang of teenagers turn up and turn on asshole mode. Steve who’s been feeling emasculated for a while decides to take them on, while Jenny – who works with kids in her day job – is part amused and part nervous.

Shit goes down.

It was decent , once again though half the things that happened wouldnt hold true in the real world. And the one thing that always happens in every movie out , when there is a person running from or running too, they always seem to fall and break something or they step on some thing. In saying this , this site is excellent , who ever is running this site . Hats off to you , great job. And thanks for the watch.

Good movie but they stopped the story before the whole of Scotland yard caught up with this lot and proved what happened and locked them all up. They left enough clues and loose ends to sink them all. I guess that will be the sequel, ‘Justice For Eden Lake’ Hope they all burn, the scum.

This freaked me out when I first saw it and it still hits me spot on a rewatch
Great set up before it goes all out twisted f*ckery, and that ending is just a masterpiece.

Ugh, I really wanted to love this. It always sucks to hear great things about a film and then be sorely disappointed. So many people like this! Crazy. It really does have some decent intense moments and damn fine acting. But as someone mentioned in the above comments, it’s so fucking unbelievable. 30 mins in I was already fidgety and keeping a mental list of all the shit that happened that never, ever would happen in real life. It is important to suspend reality a bit when watching horror, but I find that works best with supernatural, monster, devil, etc… Read more »

Completely agree. It had some great moments and tension but was ultimately ruined by coincidences and implausible behavior. Coincidences are almost never a good plot device.

Great movie! The british can do it as well as the Yanks and better with this one. Reminded me a bit of Last House on the Left, but I enjoyed this one more. Ending was a bit unexpected but sometimes the bad guys win. Dont know if there is a sequel but I hope there is.

It was frustrating because the man and especially the woman protagonists were so passive. All of this could have been avoided if they didn’t keep letting the kids off so easily. Like at the camp, after killing that stupid dog the man should have killed Brett while he was mourning and distracted, then killed all of the other kids who didn’t run away Instead they made themselves to be easy targets because they weren’t willing to fight back. And that stupid woman who kept saying “just leave it”, like this is why fuckers like them get away with things. Because… Read more »
