The Blue John Cavern is one of the four show caves in Castleton, Derbyshire, England. The cavern takes its name from the semi-precious mineral Blue John, which is still mined in small amounts outside the tourist season and made locally into jewellery. The miners who work the remaining seams are also the guides for underground public tours. The eight working seams are known as Twelve Vein, Old Dining Room, Bull Beef, New Dining Room, Five Vein, Organ Room, New Cavern and Landscape. See more »

Sightseers is typically British dark comedy. A nerdy couple go on a caravan trip that turns increasingly surreal and bloody. It is a quirky film and not one to take too seriously.
I wasn't totally convinced by the scenario or some of the scenes but I liked the way it didn't always go for the obvious. There are plenty of darkly comedic moments and for a comedy it does actually make you laugh. There are a few wince inducing scenes that make give you some guilty laughs.
The two lead performances are good and put interesting performances as the unbalanced couple. You never quite know how the relationship will turn out and the writers are to be applauded for not going down a stereotypical route.
It is not a perfect film by any means, there are a few patchy moments, Tina's mom was criminally underused and some of the scenes just didn't work. As a result Sightseers falls short of being a great film which is a shame as I think it had the potential to be just that. However the good outweighs the bad and this is a very enjoyable film and unique film that delivers a brilliant ending.
