British director James Watkins presented Eden Lake, a film about adolescence combined with the most extreme delinquency. Since the beginning of this year alone, there have been 24 people stabbed to death in the United Kingdom, all of them at the hands of underage kids.
"Since media pressure is so intense, the sensation of living in a horror movie has increased all over the country", explained Watkins, who also added that "I thought it was a good idea to spice up reality a little to make a genre film. And to set the record straight, it's not a social drama".
The film, starring Nelly Reilly and Michael Fassbender, explains the story of a couple who go to spend the weekend near Eden Lake. An encounter with a gang of teenagers turns their romantic weekend into a genuine nightmare.
After the presentation, the director of the film posed for the media at the Hotel Meliá lookout point.
