The Reeds

Another new British horror which may be worth a look is The Reeds. Sorry, can't think of any "reeds" puns. Erm...

Here's the synopsis:

A weekend boating trip through the Norfolk Broads becomes a terrifying, deadly ordeal for six 20-something year old friends.

Aboard the Corsair Star, a small cruiser rented from the local marina operator, the boating party loses its bearings and cuts through the vast reedy tidewater in search of the main channel. After the first casualty by a freak accident, the boat runs aground.

Every effort to preserve themselves and find a way out fails, as one by one the friends are terrorized by young punks and killed by a hooded man with a gun. There is no escaping this vast waterway, a place of endless return...
And here's the trailer:



From that it actually looks really good, sort of Eden Lake meets Donkey Punch with some supernatural overtones those two films were missing. Plus, it's got Jambo from Hollyoaks in it! It can't fail, surely?

Are we "reedy" for such a film? Christ, that was bad.
