Format: DVD
Cherry Tree Lane is written and directed by Paul Andrew Williams. It stars Rachael Blake, Tom Butcher, Sonny Muslim, Jumayn Hunter & Ashley Chin. Plot finds middle-class couple Christine (Blake) & Mike (Butcher) suffering the ultimate home invasion hell when one night three youths force their way into the house looking for their informant son.

It's the sort of plot that could have been gleaned from The News Of The World on a Sunday morning. Whilst not as horrific as Eden Lake, or as far fetched as Harry Brown, Williams' third film unsettles from the off and has much to say along the way. We begin with a slow zoom in shot of the front of the house, a middle-class suburbia that's comforting and a world away from the horror about to be unleashed. Then inside and Williams appropriately films an untended cooking pot coming to the boil as Christine chats on the phone in the back ground, the simmer to boil motif neatly setting us up for what is to come. Told in real time, Cherry Tree Lane's story never leaves the house, claustrophobia reins as our couple are trussed up and subjected to a terrifying ordeal. Pretty sparse in set up and location, then, but this is not just an excuse for some terror. Williams goes a bit more deeper with his themes, daring to delve into the psyche of Britain's unruly youths, neatly observing cultural class division and the ever widening gap between the generations. It's darkly humorous at times too, the bleakness of which has a cheek about it as the story runs its (collision) course.

Where Cherry Tree Lane differs from other film's of its ilk is that the violence is mostly done off camera, mercifully so during one extreme passage. The power of suggestion really comes to the fore as we hear but don't see.

Format: DVD
Michael (Tom Butcher) and Christine (Rachael Blake) have a strained relationship. He doesn't trust her after she confessed to an indiscretion. They also have an issue with their son Sebastien (Tom Kane) who have been hanging out with the wrong sort. Their conversation is low, so I needed to crank up the volume to hear what they were saying. What was with the still camera in the opening bedroom shot?

Soon some of Sebastien's mates break in looking for him in a bad sort of way. This becomes a home break-in film as our gang helps themselves to some cookies, DVDs, and the wife. Things get weird when the gang's girlfriends show up, one of which is dragging along her innocent pre-teen brother.

The break-in formula runs its course and rather quickly in this 77 minute film.

The acting was alright, the characters needed a little more developing. The home break-in terror was light compared to others in this genre. You might want to go watch "Mother's Day" or "Last House on the Left" again before seeing this one. Not really worth renting.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, off screen rape, discreet nudity.

I decided to rent this film out, After the 4 stars on the front of the dvd case given from the magazines "Empire" and "Total film" caught my eye. First of all i must say this movie is not for everyone.. There are some, lets say very uncomfortable and awkward scenes in comparsion to the controversial "Funny Games" made in 2007 where the plot is very identical. Teenagers breaking into mum and dads home and subjecting them to humiliation and (sexual)violence etc... other films it brought to mind while i was watching it were the last 20 minutes of "The Great Ecstasy Of Robert Carmichael" made in 2005 and "Last House On The Left" Films which give the message that not even your home is a safe place,and always think twice before answering to strangers.
Being a fan of horror and thriller films i was`nt dissapointed....due to some really good acting preformances. The film is made up of a list of unknown actors that have been seen in British tv programmes like Holby city, Peak pratice, The Bill, Peep show etc...
The film is directed and written by Paul Andrew Williams, who has also made "London To Brighton" and "The Cottage"
The film running time is 74 minutes, Audio is 5.1 surround or 2.0 stereo, English subtitles only. The Speacial features include Commentary,the making of, and trailers etc

I saw this film in Blockbuster and decided to rent, based on the cover and the 4 stars being plastered over it.

The whole film takes place in the same couple of rooms and is shot in real-time. My initial opinion after 10 minutes of watching a pan boil and a couple eat dinner was "was a load of junk, why am I watching this toot". But I decided to watch the entire film, to see how shocking it was (after the hype of the cover).

What entails is a shockingly accurate depiction of youth culture today. The scene where the father is subjected to having to hand over his banking details to the unwanted visitors is true enough to real life these days, but the scene where the "lead-boy" takes the mother into another room and *off camera* rapes her, are actually quite disturbing, and again, very accurately describes the mentality of the younger generations in todays world.

All told, the film is short (mercifully) and far from sweet. If you enjoyed Eden Lake, then watch Cherry Tree Lane. Whilst its not as visually distrubing, the plot and the mental picture it builds up are more than compensating.
