One of the creepiest horror movies of the last couple of years, Eden Lake clearly draws influence from the likes of Funny Games, as it presents the story of Jenny and Steve, a young couple who head off on a seemingly-idyllic holiday pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However, it doesnt take long before trouble follows them, in the shape of a group of teenagers (and their dog). And what starts off as a bit of harassment soon makes the whole holiday a simple game of survival. In different hands, Eden Lake could have been a run-of-the-mill, fairly nasty horror film. And while its still not what youd call pleasant, its handled properly, and this means there are substantive characters, some well-handled tension, and an unwillingness to shy away from the films setup. Its a hard film to take your eyes off. Do be warned, though: Eden Lake isnt a film where the camera is turned away at the key moments, and family viewing it absolutely isnt. But it is a very well made modern-day horror film, that sidesteps the many pitfalls of the genre. Its not an easy film to sit through, but it is a gripping one, and its a movie thatll stick in your mind long after the credits have rolled. Other than that, the less you know about it, the better --Jon Foster

...I am a complete sucker when it comes to cheap makeup. I have 2 rules though - 1. it has to be good quality, and 2. it can't be tested on animals. I was absolutley thrilled when I found Beauty UK eye shadow products because they ticked all the boxes for me!
My first thoughts on the Beauty UK display when I entered Superdrug was that i was a bit put off by it. The stand itself...
