Trivia

The plot was in part inspired by the real-life beaching of the container ship MSC Napoli off Branscombe Beach in Devon in 2007. At the time, the incident was widely reported in the British media as local residents descended on the beach to illegally "salvage" items such as motorbikes and trainers from the wreckage.

Cracking little British horror
17 March 2010 | by declanioSee all my reviews

I'm rather perplexed by the fact most of the reviews on here go on about the lack of budget, albeit in a positive way. Yes it's not exactly Avatar in terms of spending on effects etc but the cost isn't something that's terribly relevant with this movie. The limited setting - most of the action takes place in a cul de sac - adds to the claustrophobic feeling. And the gore when it comes has the claret flowing with gusto and looks pretty convincing.

I did struggle a couple of times to understand the dialogue - a combination of muffled voices and regional accents - and although on one occasion this seemed to be a pretty key piece of information, in all it was fine.

Definitely worth checking out and I shall be following the director's work with interest
