YMMV: Eden Lake
  • Jerkass Woobie: Steve, and most of the chavs themselves. Cooper in particular.
  • Moral Event Horizon: The gang crosses it when they torture Steve, taking turns slashing him with knives, and finally cutting out his tongue. During this scene, Brett doesn't do any torturing himself, but forces his "friends" to do it while filming the whole torture. Cooper is even crying when it's his turn to cut up Steve, but he still does it.
  • Paranoia Fuel
  • Unfortunate Implications: There is a definite and resounding class aspect at work between the civilised and virtuous middle-class victims and the feral, brutal and sadistic chavs and their families which can make this very uncomfortable viewing.
  • The Woobie: Jenny.
