10/11/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #11 – Eden Lake.

Eden Lake

This movie scared the bejesus out of me for far different reasons than most of the others on this list. There is nothing supernatural, no monsters, no demons, no serial killers… Just kids. Evil f*@#ing kids. And they’re not evil because they’re possessed or anything like that, no. They’re just a gang of angry, uncontrollable, and out of control kids. Dare I say it because I’m only in my 30’s but these kids seriously don’t have any respect for their elders. Michael Fassbender is hitting Hollywood bigtime right now, so it’s fun to see him in this smaller British flick getting utterly bullied by some teens. Poor guy, all he wants to do is take his girlfriend up to the mountains for a getaway at a secluded mountain lake. But let’s just say it gets complicated. The suspense in this movie is absolutely pitch perfect. I swear at some points, you’ll find yourself holding your breath as well. And of course there are those moments where you think to you yourself, “wait, they’re just kids.” Then in the next scene, you’ll realize why these are FAR from “just kids.” Great suspenseful flick with such a haunting and fitting ending that it stuck with me for days.
