YMMV / Eden Lake

  • Did Not Do the Bloody Research: Some viewers, who asked "who goes camping without a weapon(s). This was made at a time England was run by an EXTREMELY liberal government, and if you travelled with a weapon you're probably being charged with intent to murder, no questions asked.
  • 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
  • The Woobie: Jenny.
