Trivia

The trams at Crich mostly ran along the streets of cities in United Kingdom before the 1960s, with some trams rescued and restored (even from other countries) as the systems closed. The town of Matlock is close by and the nearest train service is from Whatstandwell railway station on the Derwent Valley Line (Derby-Matlock line), with a steep walk up to the museum at the top of the hill.

Is it comedy or just black?
29 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film because I had seen Alice Lowe in "Snuff Box" (more black comedy) and I was curious about her accent. So I didn't know what to expect. If you've read many comments, you'll know—lots of psychopathic violence.

I may be wrong. Ben Wheatley may have just woken up and thought, "Wouldn't it be funny to have a mentally off-balance couple on vacation?" I assume that it's more than that, but the British like their comedy black.

Here's my take. It seemed to me more about questions than statements:

What role did Tina's mother play in the creation of a monster?

Why did her mother dislike the boyfriend? Was she just being selfish or petty,or did she really see something evil in him?

Would he have turned out the same way if not for the first accident?

What is it that makes couples move toward each other—thinking alike, doing alike, trying to please the other—when the things they think or do are often so destructive?

Is the movie saying something about a society that, while often rude, is civil and trusting enough that people put themselves in the path of murder without even being the least bit suspicious?

What is going through the characters' heads as they commit each act? How many Chris's are there in society just waiting to pop?

I think there is one statement that the movie is making: You don't have to like or sympathize with the main characters just because they're the main characters. Not every story has to have a hero. Just because you can't identify with or like the main characters doesn't make it a bad movie.

I gave it 8 out of 10, not because I'm recommending it for everyone--far from it--but because I thought it was interesting in a way that so many movies are not.
