Watched the new-to-DVD film, Eden Lake, a short while ago. It was a horrific experience. It’s rather like Lord of the Flies meets Straw Dogs — a very pessimistic cautionary tale about the savagery of humans. I have some reservations about whether they pushed the premise of the film too far by bringing in the parents of the feral kids at the end, but besides that, you couldn’t ask for a more tightly-directed or more unnerving film experience.
