Sean takes his two friends into the rural wilds of Wales in search of an underworld specialist who can illegally revive his failing business. Deep in alien, isolated territory, they accidentally cross William Parry, a broken and desperate farmer dangerously hateful and paranoid of all around him. The situation spins rapidly out of control, spiraling into a horrific heart of darkness spree of pointless violence and revenge as Parry hunts the three friends across the stark and unforgiving terrain.

When a carful of Essex boys arrive in Wales on the path of a business contract which will help support character Sean's ailing prospects, it isn't long before they irritate the wrong person. Bill is a local farmer, who doesn't take too kindly to pretty much anyone, judging by his interactions with other villagers in the local pub - so the chances of him getting along nicely with the rather arrogant new arrivals were never great. That said, Bill is not a boogeyman figure; he can resent and regret getting involved with these men, whatever he finds himself led to do...
Evidently working on a restrictive budget (like the majority of independent filmmakers) director Chris Crow is to be applauded for not letting this get in the way of a decent horror yarn. The pace here is spot on and, although knowing its limitations, strong performances from all the main characters maintains interest. Special mention must go to Joshua Richards as Bill, a distinctive person who plays a convincingly nasty individual here.
Sure, the plight of strangers is a common plot device, but Devil's Bridge is an entertaining and well-handled game of cat and mouse with much to recommend it to genre fans and mainstream audiences alike.
It has a real stark atmosphere to the film, and what on the face of it looks like a simple premise goes beyond the limitations of the story to create a modern horror of the depths man can sink too. Great performances, especially from the nutter Welsh farmer Bill really carry this film and make you care about the people involved and what happen to them.
There are moments of extreme violence along the way, that at times had me cringing, but when the violence does come it's not there just for its own sake, it propels the story along. The scene with the bolt cutters in the barn will stay with you for weeks after, you won't be able to go into a DIY store without wincing.
As I said, the story is quite simple. 3 English blokes go to deepest darkest Wales to do some underworld business deal that supposed to sort out the main character's failing business. This quickly proves to be a red-herring. The real story kicks in and it's one of survival, as the 3 are chased down dark lanes and run off the road by the farmer Bill. It's divide and conquer from there on, and not wanting to give the ending away it, it gets bloody.
I think this film will do for Wales for Jaws did for swimming, although some of the landscapes and locations are beautiful. It does have flaws and there are a couple of scenes that maybe go on a bit too long, but overall, it's one of my favourite Brit flicks of recent times.
It's low budget and not the greatest film you'll ever see, but some thought has gone into it and at times you do wonder what goes on in Wales. Worth a watch
There they tread on the toes of one William Parry, farmer and local hard nut, who doesn't like city folk too much. and appears to have been one of the activists who used to set fire to holiday cottages bought by interlopers.
Mr Parry has a psychotic episode, and decides he must defend his homeland against the English invaders.
There is some nasty violence in this film, and whilst i can't deny that the film is gripping, the brooding, violent anti-English Welsh redneck stereotypes in this movie will surely have the Wales tourist board cringing.
Plus the English Essex boys are portrayed as moronic yobs so its hard to feel sorry for their plight.
Additionally,although as i've stated, this is a well made,exciting film, you won't find many new ideas here(especially if you've seen Deliverance or Wolf Creek).
Very sweary as well.
