Did You Know?

Goofs:
Continuity: During close-ups of Steve's hand tied up by barbed wires we can clearly see that his hand is soaked with blood. However, in the immediate scene after, where he managed to wriggle out of the wires and bring his hands in front of him his hand is only bleeding a little bit. There was no time for him to wipe all the blood clean.See more »

One of the saddest and scariest movies ever made, 9 November 2008
Author: thejudgeisonvinyl from Alabama

Very few movies will leave you feeling such anger and sadness after they end.

Even though "Eden Lake" doesn't have a truly original plot it manages to look fresh and non-predictable. The acting is truly superb with the standout performance by Kelly Reilly as Jenny.

The movie has some gore which is used brilliantly without making Eden Lake look like some cheap exploitation movie. Everything that happens in "Eden Lake" is believable and this, powered by great use of suspense, is what makes this movie so scary. There are barely any clichés or errors present. If you liked movies such as "I Spit On Your Grave" or "The Last House on the Left" you will love "Eden Lake".

I can't recommend Eden Lake strongly enough.
