I rented this off Lovefilm and it arrived quite promptly after I added it to my high priority list.

I thought this was dark British humour at its best. It was hilarious in places, but I really think you'd need to be well versed in British humour to understand this, as my husband is foreign and he didn't really 'get it'.

The whole caravan, knitting and killing spree combination was brilliant - really intelligent writing - and Tina's knitted bra and crotchless panties were a hoot!

Say no more - watch it for yourselves! It's a must see!!

Although much of the critical credit for Sightseers has gone to director Ben Wheatley, the real reason that this is a far more satisfying walk (or holday drive) on the dark side of life - albeit an often very funny one - than his earlier features is that for the first time on the big screen he's working from someone else's script, and one that had ample development time. As a result it feels much more clearly thought through and less in thrall to the "let's throw in a big twist" mentality that left many feeling his previous film Kill List (Blu-ray + DVD) threw away its impressive buildup by suddenly sprinting down a blind alley. It may be another road trip with homicidal pit stops, but this time the whole film works wonderfully.

It also helps immensely that the script was written by the film's stars, Steve Oram and Alice Lowe (with additional material by Amy Jump), who play the ordinary caravaners with emotional baggage on a tour of some of the less prestigious sights in the north of England like the Keswick Pencil Museum and the Ribblehead Viaduct. She's stuck caring for an elderly and manipulative mother who still blames her for the accidental death of her dog, he's an aspiring writer searching for his oeuvre. So far so Mike Leigh, until this perfectly matched couple of overlooked everyday people's holiday takes a turn for the bloodthirsty with the possibly accidental killing of a litterlout who ruins the Crich Tramway Museum for them ("I think you've found your oeuvre, Chris.").

This is a film that got a lot of attention for its theatre run and got some fairly good press too. So I was really pleased to get this. It tells the story of Tina (Alice Lowe - `Kill List'), who lives with her mum, played brilliantly by Eileen Davis who you may recall from `Another Year'. She hasn't forgiven Tina for accidentally killing the family dog in a knitting accident and takes an instant dislike to Tina's new man. This is Steve Oram (also in 'Kill List') who likes the more homely things in life like the tram museum.

The loving couple are going on a caravanning holiday, which I believe is quite popular with people I do not know, and will visit place of interest in Yorkshire. Chris though has a little quirk, he doesn't like people with bad manners or who litter or who are generally a pain in the trousers, and I feel the same way, only difference is when they wind me up I don't effect righteous retribution.

This is a dark comedy and has some really funny or quirky moments, like knitted underwear for instance. It is not laugh out loud though and it does have a fair smattering of gore, actually that should be splattering. The scenery is great as you would expect from a film with this title and the actors are all brilliant, even the little dog. This is obviously down to the great direction from Ben Wheatley who also directed `Kill List'; I think a pattern is emerging here. Even the music is good with two versions of `Tainted Love' no less.

A couple go on a holiday, but take a whole bunch do Demons with them, and chew the fat of the land in their caravan.

Think of a midlands based Natural Born Killers, without all the media sub-plot, but knitted underwear and huge pencils, you're nearly there.

Another user on here compared this with Keith Lemon: the movie as the worst thing they saw last year. Well I'm sorry, but that person doesn't know film from real life,

Ignore the posters for the film, its not laugh out loud funny, and its a world away from anything Wright would normally do, so don't go in expecting Hot Fuzz, or SOTD. If you know Wheatleys movies, you will expect something dark and unexpected, with a twinge of humour.

Another thing I noticed with this movie, is that it has an almighty eighties feel to it. From the settings to the clothes, it doesn't feel like its set in 2012, 1984 would suffice, despite the use of technology.

It's eerie but never really scary, smart but never over pushing the mare, and amusing but not LOL funny.

There is a brooding sense of dread through out and the leads are wonderful as the stars truck people in lust.

The ending lets the side down a little, but if you are a fan of Wheatley, this is really good stuff.
