Teenage kicks

Jenny and Steve are a successful couple in their late twenties who decide to spend a romantic weekend at the beautiful and secluded Eden Lake. However, the weekend takes a turn for the worse when they meet a group of obnoxious teenagers. Refusing to let anything spoil their weekend, the couple decide to confront the gang โ€“ with terrifyingly brutal consequences. EDEN LAKE has everything you could ask for in a horror movie: an eerie location, a scary adversary and lots and lots of unflinchingly unpleasant scenes. Prepare to be scared.
