This review is from: Eden Lake [DVD] (DVD)
Yet another Brit Horror hits the market, can it raise it's self above the norm?
Well, yes and no.
The premise is the stock one that has been used, and will probably continue to be used, in any number of horror flicks - yep it's the old 'wander into the unknown and face a bloody horror' - hackneyed for sure.
Anyway, a young couple set off for a weekend camping at 'Eden Lake' unknown to them that this is also the hangout of choice for a group of Daily Mail baiting chavs and chavettes who terrorise and torture said couple (helped along by the usual dose of ridiculous behaviour by the two protagonists).
Not without the odd scare but let down by a silly ending and a unbelievable plot.
Deserves credit for annoying the right wing media though.

Annoying the right wing media? They loved it.. it reinforced their views of so called 'chavs' and working class teenagers as dangerous psychopaths.

I was about to say the same! It's Guardianistas who'll be getting their knickers in a twist over this.
