A really terrifying rural set thriller. Vincent Regan gives us a startlingly real vision of a man on the edge; someone with nothing to lose. Kierstan Wearing also gives a strong performance as a woman prepared to do anything to protect her two girls from a psychopath. Moments of real edge of your seat fear. Watch it!

This is a real snip of a film with a couple of actors I have to confess to not knowing and a first-time feature Director Susan Jacobson who seems to have pressed ALL the right buttons?
Cassie Naylor(Kierston Wareing) is the single parent struggling to bring up 2 children on a farm in the rural middle Enlish countryside, a young daughter aged about 9 who's a bit of a Bible Basher and a teenage girl who knows everything about everything. Add to this the fact the farm or small-holding seems to be losing money and she has a problem neighbour Karston (Terry Stone) who wants to get hold of her land or get in her bed, whichever comes first, but she wishes neither so he is giving her an extra hard time.
A friend of her 'missing' husband arrives on the scene and appears to be a saving-grace initially but he soon turns out to be nastier than Karstan although he defends Cassie against Karstan and her youngest daughter thinks of him as an Angel. How innocent and mistaken children can be?
But far be it for me to give away the rest of this wonderful little film staring David Bradley, one of Britains busiest character actors (Harry Potter)Skye Lourie and Vincent Regan along with a good set of Special Features. Don't miss it!

Format: DVD
Lonely farmer Nancy raises her daughters Hannah and Amy with financial difficulties on her farm, since her husband has disappeared a long time ago.

Her neighbour Karsten and his son intend to buy her farm and are pressing the family in an abusive way.

Out of the blue, wanderer Aden appears on the farm and helps Nancy with the delivery of an offspring.

Aden explains that he was a friend of her husband on an offshore rig and he offers to work for food and lodging.

Nancy accepts the offer and soon she has a love affair with Aden.....

Another one of those silly British movies that is all gritty and dirty looking, but trying to be the new 'thriller' or something.

This film fails on every level.

For a start the film has no plausibility about it, as no one would ever let a stranger stay in their house if they just appeared out of the blue, and the transformation from normal bloke to psychopath is just laughable.

When you look at it from another angle, the film has no real meaning to exist. It just happens, in a very boring and predictable way.

Boring stuff, with a few minor distractions.

Set in rural England - the peak district - with some great scenery the film unfolds into a fast-moving edge-of-the-seat thriller.
I found myself rooting for the central characters even though you don't get too know that much about them until later in the film.
From the box I knew that some violence was due but even then I was taken back a bit by the swift "justice" that Aden dished out
I read that this was the first feature film by the crew and I have to say that I was most impressed.
They have put together a really intense and enjoyable film which has a real edge to it.
I would highly recommend especially to those who love this genre and all you brit film fans out there!

Good film for a cold dark night as long as you leave the light on and watch it with your trusted partner for security reasons and keep your mobile handy! Well produced well acted and really quite scary.

Well, that's a tad tongue in cheek because it's the reason I purchased the DVD...and actually it's worth it for that reason. My immediate reaction when it finished was Straw Dogs meets On The Black Hill and that Aden's demise at the very end was distinctly black humour. The 'artistic' scenes were a little bit too predictable but it's worth viewing nonetheless.

I saw the Premiere of "The Holding" at the Frightfest this month and I pre-ordered the dvd. It's a great little thriller. I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

A fast-paced film which is shocking and a pretty scary without compromising the fun. Some great acting, beautiful cinematography and some truly terrifying characters, especially the leading man who plays Aden. I'd recommend it to all!
