''Eden Lake'' is an intense, nasty British horror film directed by James Watkins and starring Kelly Reilly and Michael Fassbender.

Nursery teacher Jenny and her boyfriend Steve go on a holiday to the idyllic Eden Lake, which is soon due to be overtaken by a gated community. After they arrive and attempt to relax, a local gang of chavs, led by Brett, joins them on the beach. Unhappy with their behaviour, Steve approaches them and requests they consider his girlfriend and himself; they refuse and begin to harass them. The next day, Steve learns that they sabotaged his jeep, and, once in town with Jenny, asks a waitress whom the parents might be; she simply denies that they are hers. After they return to the beach, the gang steals Steve's repaired jeep. The couple pursues them.
