Eden Lake is an intense 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, and where Steve intends to propose to her. When they get there and attempt to relax, however, a local gang of chavs begins harassing them. The couple drives into the nearby town to try and get the kids' parents to do something, but to no avail. That night, back at the lake, the couple's car gets stolen. They confront the gang, which only results in an escalating spiral of violence.

Unusually for a horror film of this calibre, the film was received well by critics, whom considered it tense and effective in spite of its occasional cliches and Cruel Twist Ending.
