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.
Local night club the old fire station features prominently in this film 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 »

Fancy a kebab?
Salah,a student & refugee, inherits a seaside kebab shop when his father dies during an altercation with some drunken yobs. Subjected to constant verbal (much of it racist) and physical abuse Salah ends up killing a violent customer and disposing of his body in his kebabs. He goes on to repeat this several times over. This could have been a simple kill 'em and eat 'em gore movie, it certainly wouldn't be the first. However K-Shop addresses issues such as racism, violence, alcohol abuse & greed (the ambitious & ruthless local night club owner). The movie uses real footage of drunken people fighting, being sick, exposing themselves, having sex, etc, all in public. Sadly an all too familiar sight in towns & cities across Britain come the weekends. Watching the fictional Salah bloodily butcher his victims may prove too much for some viewers but it's the real anti social behaviour caused by alcohol that is truly shocking.
