Great and harrowing film.

Does this movie in a way reflect the UK's desire to arm themselves (with guns) for protection from one another?

I saw this again last night (haven't seen it in a while) and I completely forgot just how harrowing this film is! It's up to French standard, the way it goes up to sixth gear and remains there. It's so brave and so sad and even after about the tenth time of seeing it, it's so shocking! Eden Lake is completely relentless and the best British horror film ever! Not many films go for such a horrible, disturbing ending.

No, we hate guns and have never had a desire to arm ourselves, its never even talked about by the media. What the movie does reflect is the thug/gang culture as every couple of months there is a tragedy where some young innocent person gets stabbed. Bad parenting, neglect and a range of other reasons are blamed for damaging our society and Eden Lake explores this to an extent.

It is a harrowing experience, I felt physically sick and angry at times. It's a tough watch. Great film that keeps up the intensity.

Ah. Thanks for responding to my query. I thought maybe the film was also suggesting that the people in the UK are sick of being helpless against this type of antagonism and that maybe it was time to strap up. That's interesting that despite escalating violence you folks hold your consensus.

You're welcome mate. I think "sick of being helpless" is true and in the U.K we are tired of a lenient justice system that only gives thugs a slap on the wrist. I think that's explored more in Harry Brown (awesome film if you haven't seen it!).

Stabbings happen too frequently but its mostly disrespectful kids and drunk fights outside nightclubs etc. that is the problem. There isn't really a high murder rate.

It's a great film though, reminds me of those gritty 70s flicks that had a social commentary. Horror filmmakers should watch this and take note!

The maker of Citadel said something similar to this while talking about the rash of "hoodie violence" that has crossed England lately. English citizens feeling helpless was apparently part of the inspiration for this movie.

Incidentally, I think this movie is part of the reason I hate Michael Fassbender. He's such a whiny dork here.

I finally got around to seeing it and was a little disappointed. I liked it but didn't love it. I may have been expecting more because a friend really built the film up. Maybe I need to watch it again, not sure.

Excellent movie - despite a couple of flaws.
