K-Shop is a gritty urban Sweeney Todd inspired horror set in a British Kebab Shop plagued by binge drinking culture. After his father is killed in an altercation with drunken thugs, Salah's fate is sealed in a fight with an angry customer. With a dead body on his hands the novice kebab shop owner turns vigilante disposing of the body in the one place he knows best...the kebabs. Salah watches gullible customers devour the new flesh kebabs and seizes the opportunity to seek revenge on abusive drunken binge drinkers, killing off those he deems punishable.
Filmed in and around Bournemouth on the South Coast of England, many shots were real candid shots of late night party-goers in the town over the weekends. See more »
While Salah is claiming his first victim, he has flashbacks...one of which is his dad being pushed and subsequently killed. As Salah was not around when the attack occurred, he would not have any visual reference for a flashback. See more »

"Why do you think it is acceptable to behave the way you do?"
I had no idea what type of film this was before I watched it, but I am now a fan of everyone involved with this picture. I often wonder what it would be like if someone took it upon himself to purge the world of awful people, people who get drunk and belligerent, people who enter stores and cause a disturbance, people who seem to have been raised by wild pigs in the forest and have no semblance of how to behave in a public setting. The guy in this film has the right idea; chop them up, and feed them to the other pigs. This sounds like a great set-up, and I am glad that someone finally took it upon himself to realize this in an incredibly effective film.
This movie was incredibly well-acted, the gore was generous and well done, and the script was interesting without being overtly preachy. Overall, it was the perfect movie anyone could have made based on the premise. The one sour note is the shift in tone towards the end of the film. It is not bad, per se, it just really threw me off, emotionally. I will be keeping a close eye on the creative team behind this movie. They deserve as much praise as the film industry can muster.
