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.

    Liked it – not too gory mind but all good fun. Have to say this site is amazing!

  • July 12, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    Olga Fedori was really good. Decent movie for this genre. Didn’t think it was nearly as good as some of the internet hype I’ve seen though. Still was very happy to find it here. Great site!

    this movie reminded me of the serial killers Fred and Rose West, and the movie is pretty neat as well

  • July 19, 2020 at 11:48 am

    The Cottage is another brilliant british black comedy horror. Hysterical and very gory!

  • July 25, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    Loved this – didn’t expect too much and was pleasantly surprised

  • August 18, 2020 at 12:25 am

    Omg I just seen this movie on here and that is wicked cool!!! I seen this movie about 4 years ago with my brother and few of our friends and I loved it. The father is a complete nut job lol. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies about fucked up families

    Interesting! I haven’t heard of this one, but it was great and the ending was very satisfying

  • October 10, 2020 at 12:46 am

    I found this movie disappointing, probably some– but not only– because of the comments I’ve read here before watching. What characterizes many movies of the genre is that they are “strange”, but sometimes the “strangeness” makes it too manneristic and unconvincing, therefore untouching, and this is the case with this movie, at least for me. Not that it’s bad, but it isn’t that good either. The plot, characters, atmosphere, ending– certainly the bloody violence and gore– are the cliches we have seen in so many other movies before, specially those who know this site. So what’s a special reason to watch this one? Well, if you like it British– and I suppose many do– you are likely to enjoy it; it is very British indeed. Besides– sowwy, noh may ka’ o’ti.

    No bollocks, this is a solid little thriller. The brits can do it as well as the yanks and they have that accent that makes you lol. Eden Lake was another good example of British cinema. I rate it 4 out of 5.

    Slow paced and kinda boring even with the 80 minute runtime. Ending is good tho, I’ve never seen anybody getting knocked out with a clothing iron
