Plot – Spoilers:
If you’re a cleaner working the late-shift at Heathrow airport, you’d think your night has hit its peak should you find one of the toilets plastered with shit. A Polish immigrant Lena who’s working her way through college and hopefully a better life is therefore pleasantly relieved when a friendly coworker Birdie offers to clean up the crap she just encountered.

The two get chatty and Lena later meets Birdie’s brother who’s quiet and attractive in a damaged and silent, maybe dumb way. When Lena misses the last bus home, mostly through Birdie’s fault, she reluctantly takes up Birdie’s offer to stay over at her place. And meet Birdie’s Mum and Dad who apparently have been so caring, Birdie never bothered with an education or felt the need to move out. For Lena, who’s estranged from her family, this seems a warm idea.

    Each time you post one of my requests / suggestions I feel like I’ve helped make the world a brighter place in collaboration with the good you guys already do.

    Underrated grimy movie which you really need to be ‘in the mood’ for. Up there with ‘Eden Lake’ in terms of brutal British horror

      I loved Eden Lake. Calibre is another fantastic Brit horror you might like. A little slower than this but unbearably tense throughout. Hope you find time to check it out!

    Great movie. but no matter how intense it gets I still can’t get over how much “Dad” looks like a British Peter Griffin!

    3.5 STARS:

    For me, the scariest parts of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (and similar films like House of 10000 Corpses) are the scenes in which the killers perform familiar family rituals: The dinners, the cooking, the family heirlooms etc. This film, takes those scenes and builds an entire torture/captivity narrative around it. While the pacing feels a little choppy towards the climax, over all, It really works. Every performance in this film is excellent. The cinematography is a little dated by the early 2000’s video cameras but there are some artful, even iconic shots here and the gritty, home-movie, aesthetic almost serves to ground this extremely horrible story in some kind of disgusting reality.

    Pair this film with (the marginally inferior) Red Room, also available on this site.
