Plot: Chris wants to show girlfriend Tina his world, but events soon conspire against the couple and their dream caravan holiday takes a very wrong turn.
Verdict: Offbeat Comedy Horror
Story: We follow a couple going on their first holiday around the English countryside. While the days go past they get caught up in acting on a killing instinct. Before long they find themselves enjoying their new detour of their holiday and go on to kill people.
How often do you meet someone and take an instant dislike and want to get rid of them? This offers a chance to see what people do when they can. The holiday itself comes off very much like a real holiday people would have in England and the build of a short term relationship between the couple shows how things can change after the first couple of months. It all comes off very different and keeps your interest throughout without being anything fancy. (7/10)
Alice Lowe: Tina going on her first holiday while still living with regret after her family dog was killed. She feels very bogged down by the her mother who keeps blaming her for the dogs death but soon finds a perfect little replacement to take on the journey from one of the victims. Good performance offering up a very real look at a socially awkward person on a holiday. (7/10)
Steve Oram: Chris taking his girlfriend on this trip to help him write a book, but soon his blood lust takes over after accidently killing a man who had made him angry. Good performance keeping both sides separate and looking like he fits in perfectly. (7/10)
Support Cast: Mostly the victims they meet, they try to be nice but when people are not they start having accidents. They all help to make the story a little bit more interesting and offer interaction for our lead couple.
Director Review: Ben Wheatley – Does well to create a different horror comedy without it being too much comedy. (7/10)
Comedy: Quirky comedy used throughout. (6/10)
Horror: The killing spree offers solid horror side to the story. (7/10)
Settings: Each setting is well used to create the accidental death location. (9/10)
Suggestion: I think this will only work for certain people, it won’t appeal to all the horror fans out there. (Try It)
Best Part: One-liners after the kills
Worst Part: Will have to have a particular audience.
