‘Enjoy your stay’
Eden Lodge is a 2013 British horror film co-produced, written and directed by Andreas Prodromou (In the Red [short]). The Lost Boys Pictures production had the working title Breakdown and has obviously been retitled, with artwork to match, to cash-in on seminal ‘poor white trash’ horror hit Eden Lake (2008).
The film was released on DVD in the UK on August 31, 2015 by Signature Entertainment.

A young family are stranded at the Eden Lodge. The people they meet are being killed one by one. They must fight to save their marriage, their family, and most of all their lives…
Stuck in release limbo for a couple of years, Eden Lodge is a somewhat clichéd, class-ridden slasher pic that seems to want to replicate the downbeat aesthetics of Pete Walker‘s 1970s Brit horror. For a low-budget production, technical credits and acting are all respectable, and there’s grim drama for sure. It’s not brilliant, yet not bad either and worth a look if only to see the strange development of what constitutes low-budget UK horror in the 21st century.

“Competent acting can’t save this unscary and utterly derivative brit-horror. Which is a shame because there are a lot of badly acted horrors with better plots and ideas than this sorry exercise in how to bore an audience silly. That the director has put in enough effort to present this as a professionally produced movie it’s a bitter pill to swallow that all his efforts have been misdirected.” Britpic
“Why do we punish those who are closest to us? I suppose its because we love them modest of all.”
