EDEN LAKE is a horror film about a couple who are hunted by a gang on youths whilst on a camping trip in a remote woodland.
There are frequent scenes of strong sadistic violence which include sight of a character being stabbed whilst bound by barbed wire, and a scene in which an innocent bystander is set alight in a racist attack. A woman stabs an attacker in the neck wtih significant blood letting visible upon impact, and a boy is beaten to death.
The film features prolonged sequences of sustained terrorisation in which the victims are chased and attacked in a highly sadistic manner.
There is a single use of very strong language ('c**t') written in spray paint on a billboard, as well as frequent uses of strong language ('f**k').
There is a scene in which a character deliberatley exposes his flaccid penis in order to insult another character.
